Cape Fear Academy signing day

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Cape Fear Academy’s Matt Kiatipis signed his letter of intent Thursday to play basketball at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Kiatipis is a native of Mount Albert, Ontario, and is looking forward to playing in his home country.

"I came to Cape Fear Academy to achieve a full basketball scholarship at the NCAA level,” said Kiatipis. “When I found out that this was the only NCAA Canadian school, I was attracted to it.”

In addition to playing basketball for the Hurricanes, Kiatipis runs track and is the defending 100-, 200-, and 400-meter North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association state champion.
