The Williston Northampton School is proud to announce that Gene DeFilippo ’69, the director of athletics at Boston College, is the 2010 recipient of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council’s Martin Williams Souders Award. The presentation was made at the NEPSAC annual meeting at the Best Western Royal Plaza and Trade Center in Marlborough, MA, on Friday, November 19. Williston’s former athletic director, New England Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Rick Francis H’00, presented the award.
The Williston Northampton School’s Kay Samples-Smart signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Division 1 Bethune-Cookman University during a special ceremony in Williston’s Athletic Center on Friday, November 12.
Surrounded by her family and joined by her coach, Kevin Kudla, Williston’s Athletic Director Mark Conroy, and Head of School Robert W. Hill III, Kay agreed to attend Bethune-Cookman University as part of the class of 2015. In return, the university agreed to provide her with a full scholarship. Signing the letter also gives notice to other schools that she may no longer be recruited, which will allow her to better focus on her senior year, both academically and athletically.
