Danielle Gariglio and Renee Vaiano signed letters of intent last week school officals said.
Danielle Gariglio, a shortstop, will play for the University of Rhode Island, while Renee, a pitcher, will play for the College of St. Rose in Albany.
“Danielle is a leader on and off the field,” said Massapequa softball coach Steve Donovan. “Renee is hardworking, dedicated and will be pitching in many games this season.”
Danielle, who is president of the MHS National Honor Society and is a member of Broadcasting Club. She will study communications at Rhode Island, is looking forward to taking the field.
“I love the team aspect; how the team has to work together to get the job done,” she said.
Renee, also a National Honor Society member, will study social studies education, also expressed her love of the game. “I love how every inning’s outcome can be different and that if one player isn’t doing well, there’s support from an entire team that can turn the game around.”
