It’s official: 4 Staples soccer seniors have signed letters of intent with Division I schools.
Frankie Bergonzi (Colgate University), Greg Gudis (Columbia University) and Brendan Lesch (University of Notre Dame) enjoyed a photo opportunity and interview session at Staples this afternoon. Sean Gallagher (United States Naval Academy) was not there; he was running in the FCIAC indoor track championships.
The event was originally scheduled for yesterday — the official NCAA “Signing Day” — but school was closed due to an ice storm.
Principal John Dodig, athletic director Marty Lisevick and head coach Dan Woog made brief remarks. Woog noted that 4 D-I players from 1 class is a special — and rare — occasion, and praised them for their contributions to the Staples soccer program.
The quartet — all of whom played 4 years of varsity soccer — then spoke eloquently, praising their teammates, coaches, parents and Staples High School for the opportunities they have received.
