Athletes Making Their Mark

Fifteen of Syosset High School’s most distinguished student-athletes recently signed National Letters of Intent to play their respective sports at the collegiate level during a ceremony before family, faculty and coaches.

Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Drew Cronin and boys varsity lacrosse coach John Calabria hosted this fall’s National Commitment Day in the school library, where students, wearing a cap from their school of choice, signed their respective letters. Deputy Superintendent Adele Bovard and Syosset High School Principal Dr. Giovanni Durante were on hand to congratulate them on this special accomplishment, and coaches were invited to speak about their teams’ members. 

The National Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and a postsecondary institution. The student agrees to attend the school full time and the school agrees to provide a financial scholarship for at least one academic year.
