“We are so proud of the successes these young men have had at Holy Ghost Prep, and we look forward to continuing to watch and cheer for them as they play at the next level,” said Jim Stewart, Holy Ghost Prep’s athletic director.
The eight HGP seniors, in alphabetical order, who gathered together with family and friends to celebrate their commitment to play collegiate sports on Feb. 21 are:

All told, 10 Holy Ghost Prep seniors have now committed to play college sports next year. Back in November, HGP lacrosse captains George Rusnak and Matt Rueter signed to play Division I lacrosse at Siena College and New Jersey Institute of Technology, respectively.
“These students have demonstrated hard work and dedication inside and outside of the classroom,” said AnnMarie Dougherty, HGP’s director of college guidance. “They will be wonderful ambassadors for Holy Ghost Prep.”
