St. Joseph H.S. to host an NCAA signing/Commitment Day

TRUMBULL—St. Joseph High School, southern Connecticut’s premier college preparatory school, announced today the names of thirteen senior student-athletes who will sign National Letters of Intent (NLI) or Celebratory Letters in four different sports.

Student-athletes, alongside their parents, will celebrate their achievements at a signing/commitment event in St. Joseph High School’s newly renovated gymnasium on Thursday, January 21 at 9 am. The event will be socially distant and all will be required to wear masks.

The NLI is a document used to indicate a student’s commitment to participating in National Collegiate Athletic Association colleges and universities in the United States. The NLI is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and a member institution. The Celebratory Letter (for Division III athletes) indicates that a student has been accepted to and plans to attend an institution. The following St Joes Seniors will participate:

Jack Fearnley – Lacrosse – Binghamton University – Division I
Madison Fitzgerald – Softball – Bryant University – Division I
Madeline Fried – Soccer – Villanova University – Division I
Andriana Cabral – Soccer – American University – Division I
Preston Kral – Lacrosse – Stonybrook University – Division I

Eric Burbank – Lacrosse – York College – Division III

Grace Hickey – Soccer – Ithaca College – Division III
Justin Keeler – Baseball – Brandeis University – Division III
Max Kimmel – Lacrosse – Roger Williams University – Division III
Samantha Miller – Lacrosse – Hartwick College – Division III

“We are so proud of the academic and athletic accomplishments of all our student-athletes,” remarked Kevin Butler, Assistant Principal for Athletics. “Their dedication, hard work and commitment both in the classroom and on the athletic fields is a huge achievement. We wish them all the best next year in college and beyond.”

As part of their NLI, prospective student-athletes agree to attend the institution full-time for one academic year and the institution agrees to provide athletes financial aid for one academic year.
