Conard High School senior Maya Feigenbaum signed a Letter of Intent Tuesday, confirming her plans to continue as a student-athlete playing lacrosse at Division I Stony Brook University.

Family, friends, administrators, and coaches attended the ceremony in Conard’s media center.

Maya said that Stony Brook was her first choice college. “I like the area, it’s not too far from home, they have really good food, and it’s a very pretty campus,” she said.

She met some of her future teammates during an official visit, and said they were a great bunch of girls – which made her even more excited about her future plans.

Early in her Conard career, Maya wasn’t sure whether soccer or lacrosse would be the sport she would pursue in college, but she said that lacrosse coach Megan Cersosimo helped her make that decision. Maya continued to play both soccer and lacrosse throughout high school and on club teams, captaining both Conard teams her senior year. She has also been active in the Conard Student Council and as a member of Link Crew. She also played basketball as a freshman.

West Hartford Athletic Director Jason Siegal congratulated Maya, and wished her good luck on the next step she is taking “athletically and academically.”

“She’s the type of player who can change the game,” Cersosimo said. “She’s feisty and competitive.”

Cersosimo said that Maya rises to the occasion and “demolishes” every challenge put in front of her.

With one more season left to play, Maya’s already has some impressive career statistics, which Cersosimo outlined. She is ranked fourth all-time with starts (51), fourth with assists (20), and first in career draw controls with 126, Cersosimo said. She was named first team All Conference and first team All State in 2016.

“Stony Brook is getting a gem,” Cersosimo said.
