Sherburne-Earlville High School celebrated standout student-athlete Lily Stoddard on Wednesday afternoon as the Division I-bound senior signed a National Letter of Intent to compete for the Binghamton University Bearcats track and field team!
Flanked by her father and mother, Thomas and Lynda, Lily signed a ceremonial NLI on stage at the MS/HS Auditorium in front of classmates, teammates, administrators and staff members. An impromptu photo session followed remarks by coaches Will Slentz, Wes Macker and Athletic Director Brad Perry.
Lily, who finished third in the discus during the Section 3 Division 2 State Qualifiers last week, ranks fourth academically in our Class of 2023 and plans to major in biology at BU. She also plans to enter the Army as an officer to train to be a medic and then attend medical school to become a surgeon.
Lily is the first SEHS student-athlete to join a Division I sports program since 2016 graduate Jack Buell, who wrestled for Army West Point after winning S-E’s first state championship in 47 seasons as a senior. Other SEHS graduates who have competed at the D-I level since the turn of the century are Austin Jasper (Tiffin University football), Natalie Plesniarski (Colgate University field hockey), and Mike Bagnall (Syracuse University men’s rowing).
