MacArthur High School is proud to announce that five senior members of the nation’s top-ranked soccer team have signed National Letters of Intent to play Division I and Division III soccer this coming fall. This is quite an honor, as only approximately 2 percent of high school athletes nationwide are offered the opportunity to sign National Letters of Intent with colleges and universities. Congratulations to the following students:
Sophomore Justin Cooksey had a second place finish at the New York State Wrestling Championships on Feb. 25. Cooksey won his first three matches to earn a berth in the New York State Finals at the 106 lbs. weight class. Cooksey finished his season with 43 wins and four losses, the Nassau County 106 lbs.
Senior Joe Cataldo also earned a wild-card spot to this year’s 2012 New York State Wrestling Championships as well. Cataldo’s outstanding season along with being a two-time finalist at the Nassau County Tournament earned him a spot on this year’s Nassau County Wrestling team. He joined teammate Cooksey in Albany where both helped the Nassau team finish in second place in the team results at the NYS Championships.
