Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that five North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI). A Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an institution. Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year. Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.
Congratulations go out to the following North Shore athletes (featured with the prestigious schools they will be attending next Fall 2017) including Ryan Aughavin (Brown University), Donal Ahrens (Yale University), Liam Knehr (The College of St. Rose), Quinn Lacy (Lafayette College), and Frankie-Lynne Conklin (University of Richmond). All of the students along with their families expressed excitement and joy to achieve this impressive accomplishment for all of their hard work and dedication.
At the National Letter of Intent ceremony, Mr. Lang praised these student-athletes while thanking their parents and encouraging all those in the audience to recognize and celebrate their tremendous success. Congratulations!
