This school year was a very successful one athletically. Many NHS seniors will be seen on some sort of field or court next year playing for their college. The first athletes to sign this year were Cameron Costello and Maggie Dougherty, playing field hockey and lacrosse, respectively. Costello signed to play for Lafayette College, where she will be receiving an amazing education while playing a sport she loves. Maggie Dougherty signed with Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, where she can play her favorite sport and surf in her free time.
Brandon Smith followed the trend, signing with Philadelphia University to play baseball. Brandon’s teammate, Nate Wilson, signed with Cairn University to play baseball as well. Dan Maxian, who is receiving a four-year full tuition ROTC scholarship, will be continuing his swimming career at the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Senior volleyball player Dana Bloomfield signed with Penn State Abington to continue her career. Hannah Mui has made the decision to continue her fencing career at Brandeis University.
Toni Suler signed to play college basketball at Ursinus College. On April 28, Jake Harraka signed his letter of intent to run track at the University of La Verne in California. Franco Mannino and Russell Abernethy will be continuing their football careers alongside each other at The College Of New Jersey. Tommy Capriotti will be playing college rugby with Penn State University Park. Jake Dupont will be running cross country at Franklin & Marshall College; he signed on May 5.
Many seniors will be continuing their athletic careers in college. Congratulations to all the men and women this year!
