Farmingdale State College will be seeing a lot of brothers Justin and Zachary Carere next season. The two East Islip seniors have signed National Letters of Intent to play lacrosse for the school, located in East Farmingdale.
The brothers, both defensemen for East Islip's varsity squad, are familiar with Farmingdale's team and campus. "It's a really good upcoming lacrosse program," said Justin. Zachary agreed, explaining that the Farmingdale system was an excellent fit for the brothers' skill sets.
Farmingdale State (formerly known as SUNY Farmingdale and the Long Island Agricultural and Technical Institute before that) was ranked in 2011 as one of the best colleges in the North by U.S. News & World Report. While there, Zachary plans to study sports management and Justin is interested in majoring in criminal justice.
