            North Babylon High School Senior, Jessica Sheriff will be running track next fall for Iona College on a full four year scholarship. Jessica, a very talented and versatile runner became an All-American in Steeplechase last spring. She credits her success to two Alumni, Taryn Pena and Chris Moran, who have both mentored her, along with her coach James DiSalvo.

            According Coach DiSalvo, he was ready to retire as the Girl's Track Coach, but reconsider after observing Jessica's hard work and dedication to the sport.  Like those that mentored her, Jessica is a wonderful mentor to the girls on the team.

            Jessica is looking forward to this Spring's Track Season. Especially, running in the Steeplechase!
