Wildcats Pursue College Dreams

Wildcat pride was at an all-time high as the athletic department hosted a recognition ceremony for 14 student-athletes who have chosen to continue their athletic journeys at some of the nation’s top colleges this fall.

Surrounded by proud parents, coaches and friends, the students were praised and commended for the time and dedication they have given to their sport and for being upstanding representatives of the school community. During the event, the students also took time to reflect on their past athletic experiences and share their collective joy for the ones to come.

“I am very proud of the accomplishments of our athletes on the field and in the classroom,” said Mark Passamonte, athletic director. “I have had the pleasure of watching these fine young adults compete, and I am confident that they will continue their success at the next level.”
