To celebrate the student-athletes who plan to continue playing their sport at the collegiate level, the Amityville Memorial High School athletic department hosted a College Athlete Celebration.

Coordinated by Evan Farkas, director of athletics, physical education and health, parents, coaches and district administrators gathered to honor the students’ dedication and commitment to their sport and to continuing their academic careers.

During the event, each of the nine student-athletes shared information about themselves including, the sport they play, what college they are headed to and what they look forward to most about attending college. After each student spoke, in unison, they placed the hat or helmet of the college they will attend on their head.

“Today is about celebrating the hard work, dedication and the commitment they made for, not only the last four years, but way beyond that,” said Farkas.

The district congratulates the following students on their academic and athletic accomplishments: Jonas Archer, Nassau Community College, football; Victor Cobos, Nassau Community College, soccer; Elijah Duff, Stony Brook University, football; Katherine Eastwood, Mount Ida College, volleyball; Haubry Gomez, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; Josue Martinez Garcia, Suffolk County Community College, soccer (not pictured); Jimmy Pierre Saint, Nassau Community College, football; Kevin Ramirez, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; Juan Salazar, Suffolk County Community College, soccer; and Michael Trant, Nassau Community College, baseball.
