On Thursday, Feb. 8, Gavin Vargesko and Tanner Volpatti both made a decision to continue their athletic and academic careers at Slippery Rock University.

Vargesko is 6’1, 250 lbs, and he will be playing defensive end.

 

Volpatti is 5’10, 195 lbs, and he will be playing strong safety.

The coaching staff at SRU was ecstatic to have these boys join the team.

Volpatti and Vargesko will be future roommates and teammates once again.

“I’m really excited to play with one of my buddies on the field since a young age again,” said Volpatti about Vargesko.

This is a huge accomplishment for the boys and we wish them luck in their college years!

About the Writer
Makenzie Volpatti, Staff Writer

Sister of The Elite Tanner Volpatti, Makenzie Volpatti is a senior here at BPHS. Some people say she is even more elite than her brother!

You will usually see Makenzie telling jokes and making others around her die of laughter. Outside of school, she is ordinarily catching up on some sleep or getting a workout in and running on the Montour Trail.

Speaking of running, Makenzie runs outdoor track in the spring. She sprints the 100- and 200-meter dashes and the 4 x 100 meter relay. Aside from running in the spring, she plays CYO Basketball (Church League) in the winter. Makenzie is an all-around athlete–is she more elite than Tanner?

Makenzie is an experienced writer in journalism, and she only joined last year! She writes articles about people’s opinions on certain topics. For example: She asked a couple kids if you had one wish, what would it be? Additionally, with lots of experience as being a high schooler, she gives out amazing advice. For another example: She wrote an article on five tips to survive finals week.

One of the main reasons she joined this class again was because of the notorious Mr. Allemang. “Mr. Allemang is a fun & entertaining teacher. He makes learning intriguing to me,” explained Makenzie.

Her second favorite class is Child Growth and Development with Mrs. Dzanaj. Makenzie’s love for the kids and seeing them smile makes Makenzie’s day every time she sees them. Beyond high school, the future Pitt Panther wants to major in nursing.
