Six MAHS athletes make their college selections

Posted

Six Middletown Area High School athletes signed to continue their careers in college at a ceremony at the high school Friday.

They were:

• Gabrielle Krupilis, softball at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

• Luke Mrakovich, basketball at Penn State York.

• Ethan Newton, football at Lycoming College.

• Logan Stoltzfus, wrestling at Queens University of Charlotte, North Carolina.

• Abby Yohn, cheerleading at Susquehanna University.

• Noah Zimmerman, baseball at Allegany College of Maryland.

We asked the athletes for some feedback about their careers and college choices. Here are some of their responses.

Abby Yohn

Parents: John and Liesl Yohn

College: Susquehanna University 

Position played at Middletown: cheerleader

Position expected to play in college: cheerleader

Expected major: luxury brand marketing and management (minor in international relations)

College: Queens University of Charlotte 

Position played at Middletown: varsity wrestling team, freshman through senior year.

Reason for selecting college: Charlotte is a beautiful area. Their wrestling coach is a Pennsylvania native, and has coached some of the most prestigious wrestlers to step on the mat. He is an NCAA champion from Penn State and an Olympic medalist multiple times. The school offers vast opportunities to further my success in the classroom and on the mat. Also, it is the first year the school has wrestling. I want to be able to start traditions that last forever. 

Best memory: Beating Jake Silverstein from New Jersey in overtime (he was ranked eighth in nation). 

Luke Mrakovich
