Nine NS High School Athletes Sign National Letters of Intent

Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that nine North Shore High School senior athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) this Spring 2022. A Letter of Intent is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an institution. Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year. Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.

Congratulations go out to the following North Shore athletes who are featured with balloons and wearing clothing from the schools that they will be attending next Fall 2022:
