SHS Senior Avani Brandt Selected to Play in All-American Soccer Game

Syosset High School is proud to announce that student-athlete Avani Brandt has been selected to play in the 8th Annual Girls’ Soccer High School All-American Game in St. Louis, Missouri on May 29.

Avani, one of the SHS Varsity Girls Soccer Team’s senior captains, is among the 45 elite high school soccer players selected nation-wide to play in the All-American Game. She is the first player in Syosset’s soccer program to receive this honor and will be representing Syosset as part of the East All-American Team, comprised of 23 student athletes from the eastern US.

Last year, Newsday named Avani one of the Top 100 Girls Soccer Players. She has been named All-County all three years of her high school career and last season was named All-State and selected for the Newsday All Long Island Team. This past November, she participated in National Athlete Commitment Day and will be playing soccer at Stanford University in the fall.

Due to the global pandemic, the fall high school sports season was postponed and is scheduled to begin on March 1. The All American Game, originally planned for October, was postponed to May.
