Coach Montoro commented on Signore
"Luca was one of the best cross country runners in the CCS this year and we are very pleased that he decided to stay local. One of our goals every year is to recruit the best local talent, and Luca fits that bill. His senior cross country season suggests that he has the talent to be very competitive at the Division 1 level."
