Northport Seniors Sign National Letter of Intent
Three Northport High School student-athletes signed their national letter of intent on Feb. 1, 2017 to play their sport of choice at the college level. The special signing ceremony allowed seniors Leah Dentale, Chris Parker and Stephanie Rapp to put their commitments to paper with their families and coaches standing by in support.
Senior Leah Dentale will be attending Drew University in the fall to play soccer, while teammate Stephanie Rapp will be playing soccer at Saint Joseph’s University in Pennsylvania. Chris Parker will be playing volleyball for Springfield College.
Director of Physical Education, Athletics and Health Paul Klimuszko wished the students luck in their transition into college athletics.
“On behalf of the entire Athletic Department, I wish nothing but continued success for Stephanie, Leah and Chris as they continue to participate in athletics on the next level,” he said. “I look forward to tracking their achievements next year on the soccer fields and volleyball court.”
