Four Canterbury Sixth Form athletes committed to Division I programs the week of November 18.
Varsity Basketball player Michael Graham signed early at Elon University, NC. Relatively new to the game—this is his 5th year playing organized, competitive basketball—Michael is a postgraduate from Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, NY where he was All-CHSAA as a senior (averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds) and was rated the #7 recruit in NY by 247 Sports.
"Michael is a polite and humble person who comes from a great family,” said Coach Brian Baudinet. “He has made tremendous growth in his development in a short period of time, which is a testament to his work ethic and his previous coaches. He oozes potential and I'm excited to continue to help him develop towards the player he is capable of becoming."
Girls’ Varsity Lacrosse also committed Sixth Form players to Division I programs. Bella Cotier has committed to Brown University, RI; Emma Gambardella will play for Iona College, NY; and Megan LeBlanc will compete for Fairfield University, CT. Tori Congdon will also continue playing at the Division III level with Colby College, ME.
“We are incredibly excited to celebrate the accomplishments of these tri-varsity, female student-athletes,” remarked Head Coach Lindsay Mulhern. “They have been the backbone of our success for the past three years and we are thrilled they get to take their lacrosse talents to the collegiate level.”
Canterbury wishes these students success on their continued athletic careers!
