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.”
