Four Long Beach High School seniors have committed to college sports teams and were congratulated during a small, socially distant celebration after school on Jan. 14. Joined by their parents, coaches and administrators, the students signed National Letters of Intent signifying that they have earned athletic scholarships.
Hayden Callahan is heading to Mars Hill University for lacrosse, Elaina Kassap will play softball at Le Moyne College, Reagan Martinsen joins the lacrosse team at Central Michigan University and Griffen Schimmel has committed to Bryant University’s swim team.
“Only two percent of students across the country earn this achievement, and this year colleges have cut back on athletic scholarships due to the pandemic,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Arnold Epstein. “That makes these athletes’ accomplishments even more impressive and we are proud to congratulate them.”
