But on Thursday, former Rye resident Nick Lovinger couldnt have sounded more excited about that nights prom.Its crazy, he said. Im just trying to take it all in and enjoy my last couple of weeks. Senior year has been really fun.Though he was born in Rye and spent some of his earliest years in London with family, Lovinger said he was thankful to call Harrison home.Its a tight community, he said. Ive always felt it had great people and good schools.Lovinger said he plans on studying economics while at Vanderbilt, but isnt limiting himself just yet.There are a ton of things I want to do there, he said. Im going to take different classes, explore and see whats out there.Brian Lobel is also a Harrison senior and grew up with Lovinger. The two met while attending Purchase Elementary school. Lobel will be attending the State University of New York at Albany in the fall.Hes a great kid and he has a good future, he said. He has a good head on him.Lovinger played first base for the Harrison High School baseball team, something he called the best part of high school. He said he plans on pursuing the sport in college. His younger brother Tom, a sophomore at Harrison, also plays football, a sport his brother doesnt plan on missing.Ill still be at the rivalry Harrison and Rye games for my brother, Lovinger said. My group is always in the stands cheering them on. Were probably the most annoying fans in the section.
