Baldwin School honors eight student-athletes at college commitment ceremony

Eight Baldwin School student-athletes from the Class of 2016 took part in a special spring college commitment ceremony May 4 in the Athletic Center. The group announced and celebrated their commitments in front of family, friends, coaches, faculty and staff.

Baldwin School Director of Athletics Deb Surgi said, “When I think about what these young women have accomplished and the legacy they have left Baldwin and Baldwin Athletics, I am filled with pride mixed with some sadness in saying goodbye. Just take a look at their college choices, there is great excitement for the adventure they will soon embark on. I can say that all of these young women have lived the following while raising the bar for their Baldwin sports and teams.”

– The art of self-leadership
– The art of teamwork and connecting with teammates
– The art of leading others and changing culture
– The art of navigating transition in sport and life

Surgi added, “Baldwin Athletics congratulates and thanks these student-athletes for sharing their talents and for the unique legacy they each leave to our school community.”
