In front of families, faculty, and their US classmates, five student-athletes from CSN signed their National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to play their sport at the collegiate level. Photos here.
Coach Lee spoke for Bobby McNamara, who signed to play lacrosse for Florida Institute of Technology: “By signing this NLI, you are not only committing to furthering your athletic career but also embarking on a path of personal and academic growth. Remember, being a student-athlete is about more than just winning games—it's about embracing the values of teamwork, perseverance, and sportsmanship that will serve you well both on and off the field…As your coach, I have had the privilege of witnessing your growth firsthand. I have seen the sweat and tears that you have poured into your training, the resilience you have shown in the face of adversity, and the leadership you have displayed amongst your teammates.”
Coach Ott for Oliver Norhal: “Oliver is a quiet leader who strives to influence his teammates through example… Oliver is a competitor who wants the ball in challenging situations. As one of our two senior leaders this year Oliver’s teammates look up to him…In choosing Macalaster [College, St. Paul, MN] he not only will play for a quality baseball program but will have exceptional academic opportunities that will position him for success no matter what he decides when his playing days conclude.”
Coach Lynch for Charlotte Norman: “I couldn’t be more proud of Charlotte for her academic and athletic accomplishments, but what stands out more is her service to others. She holds all of the CSN diving records and is two-time 1A State Champion, but she also takes time to help the younger divers on the team (and) provide encouragement to opposing divers at meets... It’s fitting that she is going to Princeton in the fall as their unofficial motto is ‘In service of humanity.’”
Coach Stannard for Treaden Henry, who signed to play for Marshall University, West Virginia: “Treaden was an iron man for the CSN football team, taking snaps on almost every unit over the course of the season. His ability to grind and play with tremendous effort and toughness have culminated in this opportunity.”
Coach Stannard for Austin Zimm who signed to play for University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business: “Austin was also a workhorse for the CSN football team, and a vital part of our unit from a playing, leadership and example standpoint. He is one of the few athletes who never missed a single opportunity to develop while dominating one of the toughest academic course loads ever assembled.”
