Recently, Chaminade student-athlete Rocco Signore of Old Brookville conducted another speed and agility clinic as part of his ongoing commitment and dedication to the North Shore Boys & Girls Club in Glen Head. The clinic, which focused on proper running form and acceleration drills, featured 6-10 year-old players from the North Shore Soccer Club.
Formerly a star sprinter with North Shore Middle School, Signore, who was the school’s student president in 2008-2009, had a remarkable record of 43-0 in all track events for the Vikings. His track success continued into high school when he set Chaminade’s all-time freshman record in the 100 meter dash with a time of 11.61 seconds. Last year, as a sophomore, he won the 55 meter CHSAA Championships and set a school record running anchor in the 4x100 at the 2011 Penn Relays. In addition, Signore, an honor roll student and member of the National Honor Society, was named JV track MVP and secured a top-10 and top 20 ranking in New York State among sophomores in the 55 and 100 meter events, respectively. His varsity winter track season is set to commence at the New York City Armory in Manhattan later this month.
Director of Athletics Don Lang recently announced that two North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI).

Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.

The team started practicing vigorously in late August, and through their practice came great success. The players started off with the basics, and eventually worked their way up to a higher level, increasing their skill level each day.
