Lynbrook High School Athletes Who Have Made it to the Pro Sports Ranks: Fan's Look

Yahoo Contributor Network

Lynbrook High School has produced plenty of high-quality lacrosse, baseball and golf talents over the past few decades.

Here's a look at the athletes from Lynbrook High School who made it to the pro ranks:

Baseball

No. 11-ranked Lynbrook (10-12) was ousted from the 2012 playoffs by the Garden City Trojans on May 14, but their rich baseball legacy will continue to be cherished well into the offseason.

Lynbrook alum Dan Mascia, a flame-throwing righty, had a 4.50 ERA in the Texas Rangers' rookie league in 1994. Tim Roth, another Owls' baseball product, made a brief stint with the Kansas City Royals in Spring Training of 1994 and 1995.

Additionally, Charlie Foster played for the United League contender Alexandra Aces in 2007.

Golf

Garrett Engle was a fan favorite for Lynbrook's boys' golf team, but he turned pro and made a name for himself on the PGA circuit.

Lacrosse

Lynbrook produced several boys' lacrosse talents who went on to showcase their skills at the pro level.

The Long Island Lizards featured three former Lynbrook players since 2000, as Greg McCavera, Jason Doneger and Rickey Pages each donned the green-and-white in the MLL.

In the early 1990s, Lynbrook grad Don Borges played for the now defunct MLL franchise, the New York Saints.

The Baltimore Thunder, who are now the Colorado Mammoth, also had Lynbrook's Quint Kessinich in net for a brief time in the late 90s.

Kessinich, a multi-sport standout who won two county championships in wrestling while he was a student at Lynbrook, currently serves as a sportscaster for ESPN and ABC.

Lastly, Adam Doneger played one season with the MLL's Rochester Rattlers in 2003, and briefly performed with the New Jersey Pride in the mid-2000s.
