Calhoun High School announced that 10 student-athletes formally committed to playing a sport at the collegiate level.

“These student-athletes have worked tirelessly to reach the heights that they have attained,” said Calhoun Vice Principal Dr. Neil Testa. “To be a collegiate-athlete on any level is to be part of a select group of individuals. As someone who experienced college athletics first hand, I know of the excitement that you must be feeling knowing that you are able to continue competing in the sport you love.”

The following signed letters of intent: Devon Bayor, University of Colorado – Boulder (lacrosse); Saffron Hughes-McTurk, Misericordia University (soccer); Giana Kapoosuzian, Bryant University (lacrosse); Megan Keener, Adelphi University (lacrosse); Lauren Marinello, Molloy College (soccer); Michael Losak, SUNY Oneonta (baseball); Justin Neugebauer, Manhattanville College (baseball); Jack Roberts, Adelphi University (lacrosse); Shane Sanders, SUNY Purchase College (lacrosse); and Georgeanne Zimmerman, Marist College (swimming).

In a symbolic certificate signing ceremony at the school, the athletes were awarded commemorative Calhoun pens.

“When you begin your college athletic career in a few short months, you will undoubtedly be both excited and nervous,” Dr. Testa told the honorees. “Work hard on the field and in the classroom. Look to be a leader both on and off the field of play.”
