At its meeting on Feb. 23, the Port Jefferson Board of Education celebrated high school junior Jillian Colucci’s accomplishment of being named an All-American soccer player.

Her coach, Allyson Wolf, gave a brief speech about Jillian, who was presented with a certificate.

“Jillian is dedicated and a true leader who inspires her teammates,” Wolf said. “We are lucky to have her in Port Jefferson, as she exemplifies what it means to be an athlete on a daily basis.”  

In addition to this honor, Jillian holds several regional and state titles, including League Player of the Year, All-State, All-Region, All-Long Island Team and New York State Player of the Year. She is also a two-season athlete, as she is a member of the school’s varsity basketball team.
