MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School hosted its third signing day event of the year as six student-athletes announced their college commitments on Tuesday. Athletic Director Frank Bifulco hosted the event to celebrate the student's achievements. "It is an honor to now be able to step up to the NCAA and play at the next level. You should be very proud." Seniors Andrew Clark, Drew Cohn, Kyle Mangold, Claire Tolman and Spencer Weiner committed to Division 3 schools. Lauren Potechin committed to Vanderbilt University that competes at the Division 1-A level.

The men's soccer team had three athletes announcing their commitments, Cohn heads to Ithaca College, Clark chose Trinity College and Mangold takes his net minding skills to Hobart College.

Cohn was unequivocal in his choice of Ithaca College. "It's the correct school for me." Clark echoed the confident tone in his decision to head to Trinity College in Connecticut, "It has liberal arts and engineering, so I can pursue what I want and play soccer." Hobart College appealed to Mangold on a more interpersonal level for his future teammates. "I loved the school when I visited, and Coach Griffin and the rest of the team was really welcoming, great guys."

Potechin who will bowl for Vanderbilt University in Tennessee said of her choice "I pick Vanderbilt because of the atmosphere and it was a good fit. I am excited about everything."

Tolman echoed Potechin's sentiment of finding the right fit for her college selection.  Bates Track and Field "It was a really great fit, and I knew I wanted to run track at the D3 level."  Bates College in Maine offered her the right mix of 'fit' and track and field opportunities. 

Heading west to Allentown, Pennsylvania Weiner found  Muhlenberg College up to par to pursue golf at the collegiate level, but he also wanted a solid education. "It's a great mix of academics and golf."

Though the event was inside the official signing period for football, soccer and men's water polo that opened February 1,  no official Letters of Intent were signed. The official signing period for sports, excluding basketball, soccer, football and men's water polo, opens April 12. Announcing commitments outside of that period is an accepted practice to recognize students who are continuing to college level athletics. 

According to the National Letter of Intent website, the NLI only apply to perspective student-athletes attending full-time at a  four-year college or university for the first time. The NLI is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution whereas the prospective student-athlete agrees to attend the institution full-time for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters). In return, the institution agrees to provide athletics financial aid for one academic year (two semesters or three quarters).
