BHS Duo to join Cornell Athletics
4/18/2013 (Updated 6:52:54 PM)BINGHAMTON -- Two Binghamton High School seniors made their intent to join Cornell Athletics official Thursday afternoon.
Deyon Godbay joins the university as a member of the diving team, while Abbie Bideaux will join track.
The pair made history as the first Patriot duo to sign with a Division I program. They also both hold BHS records in their respective sports.
Though both recognize their talent levels, this experience is still something they are both grateful for.
Godbay says, "It feels kind of surreal. All the hard work that I've put in has finally paid off, and it's kind of like solidification of my attendance at Cornell."
Adds Bideaux, "I honestly never really thought that I would be running in college because I only started my freshman year but I'm really excited and I can't wait to start."
Both Godbay and Bideaux will be majoring in Biology at Cornell.
