Dondero to Pitch for Queens College
East Islip High School baseball player John Dondero has signed a national letter of intent to pitch for Queens College, which he will attend on scholarship this fall. The senior, who plans to major in business, felt at home at the Flushing campus, and was impressed with the pedigree of the baseball coaches. “One coach pitched in the minor leagues, and another at St. John’s,” Dondero explained. He attributes his success – both in school and on the mound – to his experiences in the East Islip athletic program. “My coaches at EI helped me out and guided me,” he said.
