Alumni in the College & Pro Ranks

August 18, 2018

 

 

The fall season is already underway in the NCAA. Check out where thirteen former Bears are continuing their athletic careers this season.

Chase Audige ’17 // William & Mary Basketball

Audige helped lead the Brook to a Long Island crown as an 8th-grader in 2013, then followed that up as a key piece of the 2014 County Championship squad. After reclassifying and finishing up his career at the Hill School, the former Bear is set to begin his career as member of the Tribe. First Game: November 10

Mac Bohuny ’17 // Boston College Basketball

Last year Bohuny walked onto the Eagles’ basketball team, becoming a key practice player for a team that made it to the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament before bowing out in the NIT. First Game: November 6

Jyles Etienne ’17 // Indiana University Track & Field

Last December Etienne began his career as a Hoosier in historic fashion by resetting the Hoosier Open meet record with a leap of 7′ 3″ that slotted him at #2 in the country at the time. Unfortunately, he was hampered by a hamstring injury for the remainder of the season. He looks to have a breakout season in his sophomore campaign. First Meet: TBD

Miranda Harrigan ’18 // Hamilton College Cross Country

Harrigan was the backbone of our cross country team for the last five years and begins her next chapter as a Continental. First Meet: September 8

Rosa Jones ’16 // Franklin Pierce University Golf

A season ago, the Ravens won the Northeast-10 Championship with Jones a key contributor to the squad. Jones took 64th overall at the Division II East Super Regionals in May. First Match: August 31

Shane Kelly ’11 // Malone Rugby Football Club

Malone won the Division 2A crown of the Ulster Bank League last spring, but Kelly was sidelined for much of the season with an injury. He remains a key cog in the Red Sox machine as an attacking scrum half. First Match: August 25

Don Liotine ’13 // Stony Brook University Football

Liotine enters his senior year with the Seawolves after a stellar 2017 campaign in which he led the team in total touchdowns (11), rushing touchdowns (10), and all-purpose yards (1,486). His two scores highlighted a 59-29 playoff victory over Lehigh. First Match: September 1

Luke Meyer ’15 // Gordon College Basketball

Meyer played in 14 games last season in helping the Fighting Scots reach the semifinals of the Commonwealth Coast Conference Tournament. Meyer enters his senior season as a key reserve. First Game: TBD

Luke O’Connor ’16 // Sarah Lawrence Basketball

Last season O’Connor drained 25 three-pointers for the Gryphons while averaging 15.6 minutes a night. O’Connor enters his junior season looking to take on more of a scoring role. First Game: October 27

Rod Odom ’09 // Nizhny Novgorod Basketball

Odom averaged 10.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game last year for the Lavallois Metros, a professional team in Paris. This fall he begins his fifth year of professional basketball with a new club in Russia. First Game: September 20

Charles Tankeh ’16 // University of Hartford Track & Field

Last season Tankeh took 7th in the 100m (11.02) and 6th in the 200m (22.10) at the America East Outdoor Championships as the Hawks’ top sprinter. He also took 7th in the 200m (22.32) at the America East Indoor Championships. He looks to blaze more trails in his sophomore campaign. First Meet: TBD

David Wadding ’18 // Cairn University Soccer

A year ago Wadding captained the Stony Brook boys’ soccer team to a third consecutive playoff appearance. This fall he begins his college career as a Highlander. First Match: August 31

Jerome Washington ’12 // Rutgers University Football

Last fall Washington broke out in his first season with the Scarlet Knights, leading the team in receiving yards (282) and receptions (28), one of which was widely considered one of the catches of the year. It was slotted at #5 on the Big Ten’s top plays of the year. This year, with the help of a new tight ends coach, Washington is expected to have a big year and raise his stock for April’s NFL Draft. First Game: September 1

    The ability to compete in college athletics is more than talent…It takes a true passion and desire.
