Four HS Student-Athletes Sign Letters of Intent

Four of the high school’s most talented student-athletes recently signed National Letters of Intent to play for some of the best college programs in the country. Accompanied by their proud families, the seniors were congratulated by their coaches and Athletic Director Dominick Fontana.

Kaylan DiModugno, who plays midfield/attack on the girls lacrosse team, signed with University of Massachusetts Lowell, where she plans to study psychology and pre-med. A top scorer and five-year starter on the varsity squad, DiModugno was named a Scholar-Athlete as well as All-League. She also played for six years on the prestigious Long Island Yellow Jackets lacrosse travel club.

Another girls lacrosse standout, Shannon Doolan, will attend Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., where she will major in Asian studies. Like DiModugno, she is a top scorer on the team, a Scholar-Athlete and played for the Yellow Jackets. While at Deer Park, Doolan was also a two-time MVP and was named All-League, All-County and twice a Brine All-American.

Aaren Edmead, a point guard on the basketball team, signed with Wagner College in Staten Island. Edmead, who was named All-League, All-County, All-Long Island, All-Conference and All-State, was a major part of Deer Park’s two recent League IV championships. He cited the team’s appearance in the Suffolk County Class AA championship game earlier this year as another highlight of his career. His major is undecided.

Baseball catcher and two-year team captain Tyler Theiss will attend the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut, where he will study criminal justice. During his four years as a member of the varsity squad, Theiss was named a Scholar-Athlete and the No. 9 catcher in the Northeast, and achieved All-League in his first three years with the team. He also played for the Long Island Titans travel baseball club.

“The four athletes that have just signed their Letters of Intent to play at the next level are extremely deserving of that opportunity based on all of their hard work, both on the field and court as well as in the classroom,” said Fontana. “I wish them all the best of luck on their future endeavors.”
