For Wilson seniors playing sports in college, choosing a school comes with additional considerations. They must take into account factors like playing time and coaching, in addition to the usual academic components. The Beacon spoke to three senior athletes about how they found their academic and athletic home for the next four years.

Senior Nathan Wagner, who will play baseball at Skidmore College next year, says that he will miss playing for Wilson, “The thought of just this being my last 15 games of baseball is really scary.”

Wagner has been playing baseball since he was four, and has been on the Wilson team for all four years of high school. He chose Skidmore because he liked the liberal arts curriculum, the campus, and that he will likely get playing time there.  

Senior Dominick Hogans, who will run track at Penn State Harrisburg next year, has also cherished his time on the Wilson team. He said he will most miss his “connections with [his] coach and then the person who’s like [his] brother, Isaac [Frumkin].”

Hogans decided on going to Penn State Harrisburg because he “felt really comfortable there and then for my major, it has a really good business program so I just decided there.” He has been on the Wilson track team for a year and a half, which means one outdoor season and another full year, and the advice he has to give to future track runners would be that “If you’re gonna do track make sure you work hard…If you run slow or fast in a race, its gonna hurt either way, so you might as well run fast”.

Lucy Kellogg, who will be playing soccer next year at the University of Pennsylvania, has been playing for 13 years, and played for the Wilson team her freshman and sophomore years. Kellogg states that she is “most excited about challenging myself at the collegiate level and vying for an Ivy League Championship.” She was drawn to UPenn because of “the combination of Division 1 athletics and great academics in an urban environment.” She also was impressed with the coaching staff and the possessive style of play that the coaches at the University emphasize. She will miss being a part of the Wilson soccer team and beating St. John’s in the DCSAA championship.
