Pine Bush celebrates its student-athletes moving on to the collegiate level

There are 22 Pine Bush High School student-athletes who will be continuing both their educations and their athletic careers in colleges and universities next year.

The Pine Bush student athletes who will play their respective sport in college are shown here with their coaches.

This group gathered on Wednesday, June 5, to celebrate their accomplishments with family, friends and coaches.

This is a large group to be moving on to college athletics, according to Mike Gillespie, the district’s athletic director. Students from Pine Bush will be playing softball, baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer and volleyball, running track, diving and wrestling at junior colleges as well as colleges and universities at the division I, II and III levels.

A young woman with blonde hair wearing a gray shirt sits at a large table with a sign "Welcome to Pine Bush High School" on front. Her parents are on either side of her as she signs a letter.
Becky Drumm, center, will play soccer at SUNY Delhi in the fall.

The probability of competing in college athletics is actually very small, according to research by the NCAA. Overall, only 3.9 percent of girls who play volleyball in high school go on to play in college. Just 2.9 percent of high school wrestlers move to the collegiate level.
