Grippi Signs with Mount Saint Mary

High school senior athlete Lauren Grippi signed a national letter of intent on April 18 to play soccer for Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh this fall.

“It was good for distance, for soccer and for academics,” said Grippi of her choice of Mount Saint Mary and its Knights program.

Grippi, a left midfielder, served as captain of East Islip’s varsity team this year. A member of the school’s Medical Career Academy and Girls Leaders Club, she also played for the East Islip Red Storm travel team and engaged in extensive volunteering work.
