Chaminade High School will be sending off more than twenty of their students to play college-level sports upon graduation.
Athletes from the Class of 2019 will join baseball, crew, lacrosse, track and field, and soccer teams at universities across the country next fall. Notably, two of the young men that attend Chaminade High School and have made a commitment to a college, hail from Huntington. Aidan Larkin of Huntington will be rounding the bases of Hofstra University, playing on the baseball team. While Luke Roberts of Greenlawn will be traveling up north to play lacrosse at Hamilton College.
“These young men have demonstrated exemplary skill and sportsmanship on the field and in the classroom,” assistant principal of athletics and campus activities, John Callinan said. “Teamwork, however, is paramount to everything our Flyers learn in athletics. Our Chaminade family is particularly proud of their accomplishments.”
