Nine Bethlehem High School students sign their National Letters of Intent

DELMAR – Across the Capital Region, high schools have been holding ceremonies for student-athletes signing their National Letters of Intent.

At Bethlehem Central High School Monday, Nov. 19, nine student-athletes made their commitments to play at the collegiate level. They include:

Jenna Colabufo (lacrosse) – Siena College: “My parents went there, and I really liked the atmosphere. Also, I knew the coach [Abigail Rehfuss] when I was younger, and I really liked her.” (Editor’s note: Rehfuss previously coached at Bethlehem.)

Piper Gregory (lacrosse) – Siena College: “I just think it was both academically and athletically a good fit for me.”

Grace Hotaling (soccer) – George Mason University: “Mason has an amazing soccer program, and they have an amazing soccer coach [Todd Bramble]. They are very competitive in their league. And, it’s in the [Washington] D.C. area, which is where I want to be.”

Maggie Preller (rowing) – Brown University: “I visited [the campus] last fall, and it felt perfect. They have a great rowing team there.”

Stephen Gower (rowing) – Northeastern University: “It just really worked out for me. It was already one of my top picks, and then the [rowing] team wanted me.”

Ben Reilly (lacrosse) – Cornell University: “Playing Ivy League lacrosse has always been a dream of mine. It’s a perfect combination of academics and the athletic program.”

Declan Ferris (lacrosse) – Binghamton University: “I really got along with the coach [Kevin McKeown] on my visit, and I really liked the program.”

Julia Rupinski (softball) – The College of Saint Rose: “They have a great academic program, and I like that it’s close to home. And, Coach Abby [Arceneaux] is the best.”

Christian Sauer (rowing) – Dartmouth: “The whole school is small, and it felt very close-knit – more so than all the other Ivy League schools.”
