Jessica Buis committed to University of North Florida, Madison Coates committed to Bethune Cookman University, Sydney Conley committed to Florida Southern University, Emily Lawrence committed to University of Central Florida, and Audrey Douglas committed to Auburn University.

For lacrosse, Kienan Desguin signed to play at Saint Leo University, where she plans to major in criminal justice, and Christian Hofer will play for Embry Riddle Aeronautical School.
