Three student-athletes from Lynbrook High School are one step closer to playing college athletics next year. Seniors John Carver, Andrew Ciprian and Jenna Hendrickson recently signed their commitment letters to play their sport of choice at the collegiate level.
John will take his baseball talents to Adelphi University, Andrew will continue his passion for lacrosse at Palm Beach Atlantic University and Jenna will bring her lacrosse skills to the University of Pittsburgh. John’s high school baseball coach Al Marrazzo praised the student-athlete for his hard work and this well-deserved honor.
“I am so proud of the young man he has become,” Mr. Marrazzo said. “He is driven and focused and understands what it takes to be successful. He is a young man that has earned this scholarship and opportunity. He is well deserving and we wish him nothing but the best. He and his family should be extremely proud!”
Boys varsity lacrosse coach William Leighley shared his excitement about Andrew’s next chapter.
“There are very few, if any, of our lacrosse players who love the sport more than Andrew and for him to be able to continue playing in college makes me and all of his coaches so pleased,” he said. “It was the best thing I ever did when I was a player and I am sure he will feel the same way. I can’t wait to follow what I know will be a successful four years!”
Jenna’s lacrosse coach Vinny Tetro also commended his student-athlete whom he sees as an extraordinary lacrosse player and an amazing young lady.
“Jenna worked tirelessly over many years to fulfill her goal of playing high level Division 1 lacrosse,” he said. “She has done things on the lacrosse field that players and coaches alike are in awe of. She has a natural ability to slow the game down in her mind which allows her to play at a level only truly great players can achieve. A huge congratulations to Jenna and her family!”
Congratulations to all three students-athletes and their families on this milestone occasion!
