Six LBHS senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent on Nov. 9 to signify their commitment to play Division I sports in college. Each of these students have received athletic scholarships to attend college and continue their sports career.
The athletes gathered in the high school auditorium where they were joined by family members, coaches, Principal Jeffrey Myers and Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Arnold Epstein for a celebration of their accomplishments. Following a warm welcome by Mr. Epstein, each student and their family came up to the front of the room to make their decision official. The following students were recognized:
Keira Bauer, Lacrosse, Binghamton University
Nora Codianni, Lacrosse, Fairleigh Dickinson University
Samantha Kolb, Soccer, Providence College
Jack Miller, Lacrosse, Manhattan College
Delaney Radin, Lacrosse, University of Florida
Jack Skarren, Lacrosse, St. John’s University.
“There are about 8 million students participating in high school athletics during any given year. Only about 480,000 play an NCAA sponsored varsity sport. Only 1.3% of athletes receive a full or partial athletic scholarship,” Mr. Epstein said. “When you consider this, our six athletes today are part of an elite group. Congratulations!”
