SA Inducts Twelve New Members into the Cum Laude Society
On May 21, 2018, Sewickley Academy’s Senior School gathered in Rea Auditorium to honor the academic, athletic, and artistic achievements of students during the annual Awards Ceremony which included an induction presentation for the newest members of the Cum Laude Society.
Although we won the match by a large margin, the score doesn’t tell the whole story. Your girls stayed focused and played to the best of their ability in spite of the slow pace of play, and lack of experience on their opponents part. What I was most impressed with however, was how kind and helpful the girls were to their opponents who were struggling and getting very frustrated. The other wonderful thing that happened was that we gained a new player, Haley, to round out our team (thanks to Tatum!). We welcome Haley and look forward to her progress through the year!
Tatum - 38 Medalist Zoe - 43 Brianna - 46 Lexie - 50 Haley - played exhibition - played her first 6 holes and played remarkably well, beating all the other players in her group.
