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.
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.
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.
Congratulations and best wishes to all of our student-athletes.
