Mustangs Sign Letters of Intent

In a ceremony attended by coaches, families, and teammates, seven Mustang student athletes signed letters confirming their commitment to play sports in college. Millbrook’s 2023 National Letter of Intent signees are an elite group. Fewer than 2% of high school athletes sign letters of intent to formalize their commitment to play sports at Division I and Division II colleges.

Pedro Leon – Baseball, Holy Cross (DI)
Pat Costin – Baseball, Indiana University (DI)
Ben Dale – Providence College (DI)
Juliet Drury – Colgate University (D1)
Caleigh Murphy – Franklin Pierce University (DI)
Coaches had nothing but praise for what these college-bound athletes have brought to Millbrook’s fields, courts, ice, and racecourses:
Varsity Baseball Head Coach Jack Harlan:
“Pat Costin is the most talented catcher I have been around as a coach. His work ethic and ability to command a game from behind the dish have grown tremendously at Millbrook, and he is well-positioned to find success in his time at Indiana and beyond.”
“Pedro Lyon has found a great home for himself in Holy Cross, and I have all the confidence in the world that he will accomplish great things in his time there as a student-athlete. Pedro is a great competitor and leader and will certainly be an asset to the Holy Cross baseball program.”
 Varsity Lacrosse Coach JJ Morrissey:
Ben Dale is one of the most explosive and dynamic lacrosse talents in the high school lacrosse landscape today. He entered Millbrook his sophomore year and immediately made a name for himself with his gritty and highly creative style of play. He’s been a joy to coach and we can’t wait to watch his career unfold at Providence College.”
Varsity Girls Hockey Head Coach Erica Shapey:
Caleigh is a highly skilled player and consistent impact player throughout her four years at Millbrook. We are excited to see her continued success at the collegiate level.
Varsity Girls Basketball Head Coach Shayla Zezze:
“Challe Cancer has been an absolute gift to Millbrook School and the future of Millbrook Girls' Basketball. We cannot wait to see what she will do at the next level.”
“Jess Farrell’s impact on our team and the community is beyond words and will be forever a part of our team culture. We look forward to all that comes next for her at CCSU.”
Girls Cross Country Head Coach Kathy Havard:
“Though she has put in so much work, Juliet makes it look smooth and effortless. Extra hills and miles, tempo runs on the clock, and grueling intervals on the track. Even more impressive is her mental preparation: acknowledging her competition, considering her strategy, and, when the moment is right, going all out. She has become a role model and super effective captain and is no doubt eager to compete for Colgate next year.”
