BINGHAMTON - On Wednesday at Binghamton High School, senior basketball player Annie Ramil signed her National Letter of Intent to join her two sisters, Olivia and Jodi-Marie, at Binghamton University next year.
Ramil was surrounded by her parents, Brem and Mike, all her siblings, including her future teammates, as well Patriots head coach Willie Fann and plenty of friends and supporters.
Annie was an integral part of the Patriots girl's basketball team, finishing her career with over 1,000 points, and should be a big component to the Bearcats next season.
After signing, Annie talked about the environment at B.U. that made her want to become a Bearcat.
"They all have already accepted me. It's more than a team, it's a family. Whenever I see them, even if it's outside of the school, they always are very excited to see me. They're like 'Hey Annie!' and I'm like 'Hey guys!'. It's just a lot of fun, and I'm ready. I'm excited," she said.
Annie will join a Bearcats team that will look to build off a historic season this year.
B.U. won 20-plus games for the first time in program history, while also qualifying for and winning a postseason tournament game for the first time in history.
Certainly a lot to live up to, but the Ramil trio should be up to the challenge.
Congratulations to Annie and her family.
