High school senior Shelby Clyne signed a National Letter of Intent on April 18 to play tennis for the University of New Haven this fall, where she plans to major in psychology.

“They were interested in me for tennis, and they have brand new tennis courts and a really good psychology program, said Clyne regarding her choice to sign with New Haven’s Chargers.

A remarkable player, Clyne joined East Islip’s varsity tennis team in her freshman year, helping the team to become Suffolk Big Four champions. She was named three times All-County and four times All-League, and was twice a doubles division champion and Scholar/Athlete. As a senior, Clyne earned the All-County sportsmanship award and the team’s Most Valuable Player designation. She listed going to the county championships the last three years as the highlight of her East Islip tennis tenure.

Clyne is the latest in a line of sterling sports sisters from East Islip, including alumni Samantha Clyne (a lacrosse player who graduated last year from New Haven), Jacqueline Clyne (a current senior at Holy Family University in Philadelphia, also playing tennis) and Julie Clyne (currently attending and playing lacrosse for Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry).
