“On behalf of the entire CBA community, I would like to congratulate these young men and their families on their great achievement,” said Director of Athletics Michael Mazzaccaro. “Through countless hours of hard work spent on both academics and athletics, these student-athletes have proven themselves worthy of competing and excelling at the next level.”

The following Academy men committed on November 8:

  • Brady Barber (University of Richmond, Cross Country)
