In a record year for Ward Melville High School Patriots, 28 seniors committed to compete on some of the nation’s premier athletic programs this fall.
During a special ceremony at the school, proud family and friends surrounded the students as they put pen to paper and signed National Letters of Intent with Division I and II schools, while others committed to Division III institutions.
“On behalf of the school district’s administrators, teachers and coaches, I commend these student-athletes on their athletic accomplishments, as they have committed to continue their athletic careers at some of the nation’s top colleges and universities,” said Erin Blaney, the district’s executive director for health, physical education, recreation and athletics. “The life of a student-athlete is extremely demanding, and these seniors have dedicated their time not only to their chosen sport but also scholastically to achieving in the classroom. They will always be a part of the Ward Melville Patriot family and we wish them success in all of their future endeavors.”
