BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Zoned Sports Academy, in Bridgewater, held its fourth annual Signing Day for all graduating seniors heading into their freshman year of college next fall.

The signing day allowed student athletes to “sign” to their college and celebrate their accomplishments.

Each student athlete was called up individually, and signed a certificate of excellence before receiving recognition for all their hard work throughout the years.
