As we congratulate our seniors, here is a quick preview for our junior athletes who also wish to play in college. These include Beth Brzozowski (Basketball), Ariana Iranpour (Tennis), Alison Nordell (Rowing), Logan Paul (Softball)and others. Asking these rising seniors about what gave them the passion to want to play in college, Logan says, “I have always dreamed about playing college sports. To me, college athletes are the coolest people on campus.“ I also asked about how they felt about the recruitment process and Logan said that she is “very stressed when thinking about the process. It is a lot of work, but I know it will be worth it in the end and I am looking forward to knowing the outcome.” We wish these ladies good luck in. the recruitment process and congrats to our seniors once again!
