Deer Park High School seniors Kristen DeBiase, Carli Fonseca and Taylor Maucere, all integral members of the school’s 2016 League IV champion soccer team, each signed National Letters of Intent on March 6.
DeBiase, who played center-midfield during her Falcons career, will play forward at Wingate University in North Carolina. She has earned All-State, All-County, League Player of the Year and All-Long Island second team honors. She played her club ball for Brentwood Rush.
“The coach made me feel welcome, and I loved the weather there,” said DeBiase of her choice of Wingate, where she plans to major in psychology.
Fonseca, who plays defense, signed with Molloy College in Rockville Centre, where she will major in education. She played for the EMSC Hotspurs club team and Western New York State travel team in addition to the Falcons.
“My mom went there, and it’s close to home,” she said of picking Molloy.
Maucere, a forward, will attend West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, West Virginia. She earned All-Conference honors with the Falcons, and played for the national and state champion Albertson Fury club team.
“I fell in love with the campus, and it felt like home,” said Maucere of her selection of Wesleyan.
