Bay Ridge

Set sail and anchors aweigh to Patrick Coen, a 2014 Xaverian High School graduate appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy, where he plans on studying engineering.

This seafaring young gent headed down to Annapolis in Maryland last month to begin his plebe year — that’s brand-new incoming sailor to you and me. Patrick was also accepted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, but the call of the sea was far greater than the call of the infantry. The National Merit Scholarship finalist was also accepted to University of Notre Dame, Manhattan College, Fordham University, Binghamton University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic University. Hey, this is one smart, aspiring sailor.

Standing O salutes Patrick, and wishes him this toast, “May you always have sturdy sea legs, calm seas, and a bright star to guide you home.”

Xaverian High School [7100 Shore Rd. at 71st Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 836–7100].
