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 jumped out to a terrific start, outscoring West A 24 - 3 in the first quarter in route to a 36 point halftime lead. Despite the starters playing an average of 2 1/2 quarters a piece, all five starters scored in double figures as we shared the ball nicely. Sr Dave Groetsch led in scoring with 18 points on a 7 for 9 shooting performance, soph Isiah Warfield had a double double with 15 points and 11 rebounds, sophomore Jett Roessing had 6 rebounds to go with his 14 points, junior Nate Ridgeway had several blocks to go with his 11 points, and sophomore Isaiah Smith had 10 points along with his outstanding pressure defense. The 7 players off the bench earned plenty of playing time and their hustle and teamwork was fun to watch.
