Roxbury: Two Athletic Scholars Sign Letters of Intent

Landing \ Roxbury News

Roxbury High School hosted a Letter of Intent/College Commitment Ceremony Wednesday morning for two athletic scholars, Reghan Palanchi and Alexis “Lexi” Smith.

 

Palanchi signed with Sacred Heart University to play volleyball in the fall and Smith signed with Lehigh University to continue her successful track career.

 

 

Both seniors credit their coaches and teammates for their success and growth within their respective Roxbury programs.

 

Palanchi shared, “I am blessed to have been a part of the Roxbury Volleyball family. Over the last four years, I have grown as a player and a person with the help of my coaches and teammates. My coaches always pushed me to reach my full potential and believed in me from the start.”

 

She went on say, “The memories I made with my teammates were unforgettable. They are part of the reason I stuck with the sport. I am also thankful for my USAny coaches and teammates for taking me to the next level. Without them, I would not have this opportunity. The amount of support I have received over the years is incredible, and I want to thank everyone that had been a part of it.”

 

Smith approached her sport for a different reason and explained that “As a sophomore at Roxbury High School, I decided to join the track team with my friend to help me stay in shape. I could never have imagined the profound impact the Roxbury High School Track and Field team would have on me to shape me into the person I am today.”

 

She further commented that she did not know much about track so she began her time on the team with little to no expectations.

 

“Each day, though, I learned more about the sport that I would soon begin to love. Being able to come to practice to be with my teammates and coaches was such a positive atmosphere that I looked forward to each day. Though it was difficult and stressful, I learned the true meaning of hard work and dedication. Throughout the years, this team has taught me discipline, self-confidence, the ability to focus under pressure and to prevail despite adversity.”

 

Smith went on to share, “I believe the Roxbury Track and Field program experience will not only help me exceed in college but in all the future hardships I will one day face. Without my teammates and coaches, I would be a much different person, so I am extremely thankful for the constant motivation and support that I received from them. I will be forever grateful for the experiences this team has given me that I will continue to cherish for the rest of my life.”

 

The coaches have seen the accomplishments and successes of these young ladies throughout their time within the Roxbury program.

 

Anthony McMichael, Reghan’s head volleyball coach shared some of her accomplishments with the program.

 

“We are extremely proud of Reghan both on and off the volleyball court. Reghan helped lead our program to the 2014 NJAC National Division Championship and the 2015 Morris County Championship. She also received All-State honors in 2016, First Team All-Daily Record honors in 2016, and twice received All-Conference honors in 2015 and 2016.”

 

McMichael went on to say though that, “More importantly, as a great teammate and leader, Reghan always gave credit to others when she and our team were successful. Reghan is truly a team-first player that will be greatly missed. We wish her nothing but the best in the classroom and on the volleyball court at Sacred Heart University.”

 

Smith’s head coach, Derek Bischoff, shared “Lexi Smith adds her name to an impressive list of Roxbury High School Track and Field athletes that have competed at the Division 1 level. With the outdoor season still remaining, Lexi has already won her share of medals. Included on that list are seven relay championships and three individual championships. She won the NJAC Conference Championship in the 400-meter dash and the Morris County Championships in both the 300 and 400-meter dashes. Lexi will also leave RHS holding six school records as a member of relay teams and as Roxbury’s Indoor Track and Field record holder in the 200, 300, and 400-meter dashes.”

 

Bischoff too, could not be more proud of the type of person Smith has become.

 

“As impressive as her accomplishments are, they pale in comparison to the type of person she is. It’s hard to quantify what Lexi has meant to the Roxbury Track and Field programs. She is a caring teammate and a passionate leader. Her determination and competitiveness have served as a major reason for, not only her success but also the team’s success during her three years in our program. Lexi’s accountability and standard for excellence have helped to mold the Track and Field programs and will continue to have a lasting impact even after she graduates.”

 

We wish both ladies the best of luck with their future plans!
