Two Hackettstown High School students have signed national letters of intent to compete on NCAA Division I teams.
Sevian Frangipane has signed a letter of intent to attend California State University Northridge to study Business Management and compete on their golf team.
Nioami Miranda intends to attend Monmouth University to study Physical Therapy and compete on their track team.
Frangipane, the reigning NJ Herald Player of the Year, discovered the university over the summer while visiting family. He quickly realized the Matadors golf team and the university were a perfect fit.
This year, he will lead the Tigers’ golf team as they seek back to back NJAC Freedom Division Titles.
Then he knows what he has to do next: “First I need to bring home some titles for Hackettstown this spring but once I get to college the grind doesn’t stop. I’m not only striving to be one of the top golfers in the Cal State Northridge program but to also make a name for myself in the world of college golf,” he said.
Miranda has made quite an impression as a member of the Hackettstown Tigers’ track team. Named Most Outstanding Runner at the Hunterdon/Warren/Sussex Championship Meet in her junior year, she earned the top spot in the 100m, 200m, and 400m runs at that meet as well as in the NJAC Championships and the N2 Gr 2 Sectional Championships. She had top six finishes in the NJSIAA Group Meet and top 10 finishes in all three events in the Meet of Champions.
She will bring her talents back to the Tigers’ track season this spring before heading to South Jersey to begin her college career in the fall.
