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.
We had another amazing victory posting our all time lowest number in our team history. All five girls played exceptionally well, on a hilly, short, tight course against a team who typically scores well on their own turf. One of the opponents shot a hole in one, but was unable to convert it into a winning score against our experienced Senior, Brianna. We are definitely on a roll, but are taking one match at a time with a long term goal which I will not put in print. I am very proud of our small, but mighty team, and am enjoying watching their continued improvement!
Tatum - 36 -medalist Zoe - 38 Brianna - 42 Lexie - 46 Haley - 57 ( a very solid showing in her first match! If her score had counted, we still would have won!)
