EI Honors Redmen As County Champs and Scholars


The district recognized the high school’s varsity football team during the Jan. 12 Board of Education meeting, praising them for not only winning the Division III Suffolk County Championship last November, but for their oustanding work in balancing academics and athletics. A total of 24 Redmen were enrolled in honors and AP classes, and this year’s graduating seniors will earn more than half a million dollars in college scholarships.

“If they can manage that schedule, and still perform the way they do in the classrom, it’s a pretty special group,” said coach Sal Ciampi Jr. “I’ve had a lot of teams that had a lot of success, but I’ve never had one as well-rounded.”
