The athletic department at Glen Cove High School hosted a College Bound Recognition Day on April 26 for graduating seniors who have committed to play collegiate sports in their respective academic institutions.

Athletic Director Denise Kiernan led the event, which was attended by students and their families, coaches, guidance counselors, Glen Cove High School administrators and Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Dr. Michael Israel.

“As a former college-student athlete myself, nothing could be more exciting than celebrating the achievements and accomplishments of the student-athletes before you today,” Kiernan said. “Playing at the college level requires a tremendous amount of desire, determination and focus to be successful. It is with these qualities that I ask all of you to endure and execute as you begin your journey as college-students athletes. I wish all of you the best of luck. Make Glen Cove proud!”
