Carle Place senior Leanne Iannucci recently signed a letter of intent to participate on the Division I Softball Team at Cornell University starting in the fall of 2012.
Leanne has been the varsity catcher since seventh grade. In the past five years (2007-2011), she has been a valuable member of two Conference Championships, four Class B County Titles and three Long Island Championships.
Her stats are remarkable. As a seventh-grader, Leanne received All Division Honors; as an eighth-grader All Conference Honors; as a ninth-, 10th- and 11th-grader All County Honors. As a junior she also received All Long Island and All State Honors. The varsity program has only been in existence for the past 15 years and Leanne has been a major contributor for the past five. Leanne is a career leader with 102 games, 100 hits, 20 doubles, 65 RBIs and a .935 fielding average. Her potential is endless.
Congratulations to Leanne and her parents for this wonderful accomplishment.
