SUMMIT, NJ  – Two Maplewood residents -- Claire Galvin and Ryan Schlageter -- are part of one of the biggest classes of commits in Oak Knoll School history, as 14 members of the Royals' Class of 2018 confirmed their continued commitment to athletic competition by signing early National Letters of Intent.

Athletic director Kelly Childs lauded the student-athletes and Oak Knoll coaches, faculty, staff and parents who have supported them in their athletic endeavors.

“To be a successful student-athlete takes the support from many people along the way, some of whom are in this gym today,” Childs said. “To the coaches here today and cheering you on from afar, they have and they will continue to support your athletic and personal endeavors."
