The William Floyd Athletic Department recently held its College Athletic Signing Day to recognize the hard work and accomplishments of William Floyd’s student athletes from various boys and girls sports who have been recruited and committed to play sports at the college level.
“Competing in college athletics is an amazing accomplishment as only a very small percentage of high school student athletes go on to play at the next level,” said Mark Mensch, Athletic Director, William Floyd School District. “The students’ hard work, both in the classroom and on the field or court, with tremendous support from parents and coaches, has paid off.”
Some of the students are receiving full scholarships and others are receiving partial packages to bring their talents to the college level. Among the student athletes are 12 males and 10 females from girls and boys lacrosse, girls tennis, baseball, softball, volleyball and football.
