HHS Senior Commits to Manhattan College for Girls Soccer

Harrison High School senior Caitlin Alcoba signed her National Letter of Intent on November 14th, 2018 to play Division 1 soccer for the Manhattan College Jaspers.

Caitlin, who was a team captain this year, has played soccer for the Harrison Huskies for two years (during her sophomore and senior years) in the positions of outside left midfielder and upfront as a forward.   In that time, she scored 29 goals and had five assists.  Caitlin has been awarded All-League twice and was All-Section this year.  She has also been a NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete every year and is also a three season athlete.


“Caitlin is a steadfast athlete on the pitch and in the classroom,” said HHS Girls Varsity Soccer Coach Jon-Erik Zappala.  “Caitlin is also a three season athlete who possesses inherent traits that are intrinsic and allow her to excel at the next level.  She gets to practice early and focuses on drills and stays late practicing with her sister after practice is finished.”


“At this point in time, she is focusing on studying to be an engineer and has her sights set on playing Division 1 soccer,” said Zappala. “Her grandfather is an alumni of Manhattan College and she will continue the legacy.  Manhattan Coach Brendan Lawler took an interest in her style of play and Manhattan seems like the perfect fit for Caitlin academically and athletically.”
