On Tuesday morning, Greenwich High School hosted its signing day for athletes competing in NCAA Division I sports. In total, 12 GHS athletes that have excelled in sports with the Cardinals signed their letters of intent to play for their respective colleges.

“It’s always a very special occasion for us to recognize some Greenwich High School’s finest,” said Greenwich High School athletic director Gus Lindine said. “It’s a pretty special day for the kids and their parent and for us. We’re very proud and can’t wait to see how they achieve in future years at the schools they attend.”

Alex Orapell and Devon McGrath will be attending College of Holy Cross in the fall, with McGrath playing baseball and Orapell competing with the lacrosse program. The George Washington University rowing team will see two Greenwich High athletes in the fall, as Isabelle Meskers and Elizabeth Brown will travel up to Washington, D.C. in the fall.

The GHS boys swimming and diving team will see three athletes compete on scholarship. Two of its best will compete with the University of Pennsylvania swimming and diving team, as Andrew Bologna and Thomas Dillinger signed with the Quakers. Swimming for Dartmouth College will be Iain Edmundson.

The Greenwich High School lacrosse program will see two athletes competing at the next level, as Natalie Paletta will play for the Cornell University lacrosse team and Decker Curran will be a Wolverine and compete at the University of Michigan.

In addition to Meskers and Brown, the Greenwich High School rowing program had three more athletes sign its letters of intent. Alex Slabbert will row for University of Virginia, while Megan Slabbert will compete with the Bruins of UCLA. Sylvie Brounstein take her talents to Miami and compete with the University of Miami.

“This is an awesome community,” Lindine said. “It’s a great school with a tremendous athletic program. We have kids with high expectations and moms and dads that support them. We have coaches that work really hard to do their best to help the kids get to where they want to go. I can’t be more proud of all of them.”
