St. Joseph HS to host NCAA signing day

TRUMBULL— St. Joseph High School, Connecticut’s largest, co-ed, Catholic, college preparatory school, announced today the names of 10 student-athletes who will sign National Letters of Intent or Celebratory Letters in five different sports on Monday, November 13at 9:30 am.

The National Letter of Intent (NLI) is a document used to indicate a student’s commitment to participating in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) colleges and universities. The NLI is a binding agreement between a student-athlete and an NLI 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:

Nick Coppola – Baseball, Marist College – Division I

Taylor Jenkins – Soccer, University of Connecticut – Division I

Meghan Hoynes – Lacrosse, LaSalle University – Division I

Maeve Matthews – Soccer, University of Rhode Island – Division I

Janelli Pratts – Softball, Assumption University – Division II

James Corry – Lacrosse, Rochester Institute of Technology – Division III

Sofia Chaves – Field Hockey, Kenyon College – Division III

Lauren Davis – Softball, Williams College – Division III

Jill Guilfoyle – Softball, Rhode Island College – Division III

Analise Hubert – Softball, Western Connecticut State University – Division III


“Student-athletes at St. Joseph High School are driven and ambitious. Not only do they care about their team and their sport, but they care just as much about their academics and ensuring that they are properly prepared for college,” remarked Kevin Butler, Athletics Director at St. Joseph High School. “When you think about the amount of time spent on and off the field – the hard work and commitment, both academically and athletically – it’s no wonder that they were selected to play at the collegiate level. We wish all of our Cadets the best and we cannot wait to see what they do next.”

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. St. Joseph High School will host an additional NCAA Signing Day in the Spring for scholar-athletes who sign later in the year.
