» Baylor School honored senior goalkeeper Peyton Randolph on Monday for signing a national letter of intent to play soccer for NCAA Division I member Manhattan College in The Bronx, New York, about 10 miles from her family's home. She is in her fourth year as a Baylor boarder, following her brother to Chattanooga — he attended McCallie — but wanted to be back "closer to home" in college. She picked Manhattan over Bryant University in Rhode Island. "The minute I walked on campus (on a visit last March), I loved it. It seemed like a perfect fit," said Randolph, an all-state keeper and two-time Best of Preps first-team selection. "I am excited for Peyton and know that she will do great things at Manhattan," Baylor coach Curtis Blair said. "She has been with us through an amazing four years and been a big part of all the accomplishments that we achieved. She will be missed next year."
