The list of high school athletes moving on to the collegiate level continues to grow, as another Warrenton senior signed a letter of intent last week.

In a home ceremony, Warrior Melia Kapua signed to play volleyball at Clackamas Community College this fall.

Kapua was an all-league libero last season for the Warriors, the two-time defending Coastal Range League champions who had all six starters on the Coast Range’s all-league team in 2019.

Kapua joins four other Warrenton athletes who have signed letters of intent since last winter: Devin Jackson, Clackamas baseball; Austin Little, Linn-Benton Community College baseball; Jake Morrow, Linn-Benton baseball; and Kenzie Ramsey, Lower Columbia College basketball.
