Whitesboro’s Lucas Casab is Division 1 bound.
The Warriors’ senior sprinter signed a letter of intent on Thursday to run track at the University at Albany.
“It’s very exciting because after four years of working, it finally pays off,” Casab said. “It’s a relief to actually know where I’m going now.”
Last month, Casab finished in third place in 55-yard dash at the public and federation championships in Staten Island. He hopes to have similar success for the Great Danes.
“When I went on my visit there, I felt like I was at home,” he said. “It’s a great atmosphere and I liked the coaches. That’s why I made my deicision.”
Whitesboro track coach Todd Boudreau is happy to see Casab get rewarded for his efforts.
“(Lucas) is the hardest worker on the team,” Boudreau said. “I don’t really have to push him. He actually makes me better as a coach and I’m just so proud of everything he’s done.”
