Two basketball standouts, Mattituck’s Mia Khann and Riverhead’s Raleesha Sykes have signed letters of intent to attend Suffolk County Community College and play for the Suffolk Sharks Women’s Basketball team.
“I chose Suffolk because it seemed to be the best option for me and my current situation and I knew I had a chance of continuing to play my favorite sport. I never thought about going to another college and knew I wanted to go to Suffolk. Based upon the past two meetings I’ve had at the Selden campus it only reassured me that I made the right choice,” said Khann.
“I chose Suffolk because it’s a great start to my higher education and a second chance to play the sport I love, basketball,” said Sykes.
“We’re excited to welcome Raleesha and Mia to our program, as we rebuild” said College Associate Dean of Athletics and Special Events Neftali Collazo.
“Our goals are team unity, striving to produce the best basketball players, and most importantly, supporting our student athletes academically. We look forward to the journey ahead,” Collazo said.
Sykes and Khan visited Suffolk County Community College earlier this week where they were greeted by coaches, staff and administrators for a ceremonial signing and welcome.
