Gill St. Bernard's National Letter of Intent Signing Day 2023

Gill St. Bernard's National Letter of Intent Signing Day 2023

During GSB's annual National Letter of Intent and National Signing Day ceremony, eight senior student-athletes from the Class of 2024 committed to compete at the Division I, II, or III level in college next season.  

Brooke Baisley, John DiGregorio, Declan Gillen, Lance Hollingshead, Matthew Park, Dylan Sempervive, Michael Scarpati, and George Taylor were joined by family, coaches, and friends in the Athletic Center to celebrate their athletic accomplishments and commemorate the next phase in their respective athletic careers. 

Brooke Baisley (Boston University, Basketball)

"Brooke has been a four-year letter winner and three-year starter for the girls basketball team. She is the hardest working student athlete that I have had the pleasure of coaching. She is not only a talented basketball player and athlete, but a dedicated leader and extraordinary individual. Her strong work ethic separates her from others, and she possesses the standard of excellence to thrive. 

Brooke is very well liked and respected by her teammates and sets a strong example for them to follow. She is always first in the gym and last to leave.  I could not be happier for Brook on her commitment to Boston University. I have no doubt that she will succeed at the highest level on and off the court. We are really going to miss her, but luckily, we still have one more season."

- Coach Gnapp, GSB Girls' Basketball


John DiGregorio (Purdue University, Baseball)

"We knew we had something special with Johnny from day one of his freshman year, when he earned the starting catcher role and never looked back. Along the way he's earned every possible accolade, including all-prep, all-conference, and all county honors while always representing our school with class and dignity. He's not only developed into one of the best catchers in the state, but he's also taken ownership of our pitching staff, helping them to achieve to their potential as well. He is the first "Power Five" recruit for our program and there's no doubt he'll thrive in the Big Ten Conference."

- Coach Pasquale, GSB Baseball


Declan Gillen (Wagner College, Boys' Lacrosse)

"Declan is a senior defender who stepped right in the starting lineup the moment he got to campus. He is a big physical defender who can throw checks while being an enforcer on defensive side of the ball.

Declan put in the time to transform himself into a Division I defender. It has been something special to see his work ethic translate into an excellent player but more importantly a role model student who his peers look up too.

Hard work does pay off and Declan is truly an example of just that. His best years are still ahead of him and I look forward to not seeing what he will do this spring but in the years to come at Wagner College."

- Coach Collins, GSB Boys' Lacrosse


Lance Hollingshead (University of Notre Dame, Golf)

"Lance has been an integral and invaluable leader for the Golf program over his tenure at Gill. Starting with his Freshman year, he had an instant impact and has changed the course of our program for years to come. His dedication towards perfecting his game has been something extremely special to take in, and he sets such a great example for his fellow teammates each time he steps onto the course.


Lance was a huge reason for the team winning the school’s first ever State Title and he finished 1st overall for Non-Public B and finished 8th overall in the entire state. His approach to the game separates him from the rest of the pack, and we can’t wait to see what he does in his senior season and his career at the University of Notre Dame."

- Coach DiBisceglie, GSB Golf


Matthew Park (Quinnipiac University, Baseball)

"Matt has been a four-year starter for us, and he's performed at a high level every step of the way. His countless post-season honors and accolades have been primarily because he's an elite level hitter, but just as impressive has been his unselfishness and versatility in the field. He's played third base and first base flawlessly, and last year when our pitching staff was a bit depleted by injury and illness, without hesitation he volunteered to help out on the mound and ended up being one of our most effective pitchers. He's a quiet leader on and off the field and an absolute pleasure to coach."

- Coach Pasquale, GSB Baseball


Dylan Sempervive (Washington College, Baseball)

"Dylan and his family have been mainstays of our program for nearly a decade. He started as the little brother of an all conference player and eventually became the college pitcher that we're celebrating today. Take a look at Dylan and you won't see the biggest, fastest, or strongest student-athlete in the room, but you will see one of the toughest, most competitive players I've ever coached. He's dealt with significant adversity over the years, but he's always done so with an unwavering team-first attitude and work ethic. We are blessed to have him on the mound for one more year."

- Coach Pasquale, GSB Baseball


Michael Scarpati (Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Boys' Lacrosse)

"Michael Scarpati is the do it all defender who always covers the top opponent’s offensive player. He has been all-conference for the last three years and a two-time Non-Public B All-State defender. Last season Michael was named second team All-State and helped lead the team to its first ever state championship.  Scarpati is truly a Swiss Army knife who will guard the top attackman or the top midfielder.  He also takes face offs and leads the team in face-offs and ground balls. Scarpati is the transition to the offense, and he is truly one of a kind.

He is a leader off the field as well and is serving as a captain during his senior year. Hobart is landing a player who can help them right away and I could not be prouder of Scarpati."

- Coach Collins, GSB Boys' Lacrosse


George Taylor (Washington College, Boys' Lacrosse)

"George has always been a true athlete. A three-sport athlete (soccer/hockey/lacrosse) at GSB, George has been asked to play multiple positions during his time in the lacrosse program. He started as a midfielder, but has played defensive midfielder, close defenseman, and shines at his natural position of LSM (Long stick midfield). His ability to guard people, cause turnovers, put the ball on the ground, then pick up the ground ball and start our transition game has done wonders for our program. He brings the energy every day and gets the whole team fired up as well as the crowd."

Once he plays full time lacrosse in college, his game is going to take off to another level. You just can’t teach his athleticism and Washington College landed a great one."

- Coach Collins, GSB Boys' Lacrosse
