Syosset student athletes commit to colleges

December 15, 2018 by  

A dozen seniors from Syosset High School plan on playing sports at the college level next year. To show their commitment to student athletics, the 12 students signed letters of intent during the National Athlete Commitment Day, which took place last month.

Schools that will welcome incoming freshman athletes can use stationery printers to recognize the achievements of those athletes.

The event at Syosset High was hosted by John Calabria, the coach of boys’ varsity lacrosse and Drew Cronin, the director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics. As they signed the letters stating they intended to attend various colleges, the 12 athletes wore hats with the logos of their chosen schools.

Some of the students will travel across the US for school next year while others will remain closer to home. Two boys’ lacrosse players, Anthony Celauro and Ryan Lebson, will attend Stony Brook University on Long Island. Other boys lacrosse players will venture to Yale University, Stevens Institute of Technology and Manhattan College. Members of the girls’ lacrosse team will head further away for college. Melissa Esswein is going to University of Michigan, while Rebecca Korn will attend Binghamton University.

Rachel Mahler, who plays basketball, plans on attending Washington University in St. Louis while Malini Rudra, a golfer, will go to Williams College. Baseball player Cameron Mayer intends to go to Tufts University while Matt Majoy, a wrestler, will go to Washington & Lee University.
