Ten Agnes Irwin seniors have committed to continuing their athletic careers in college, representing 15 percent of the Class of 2016. Eight athletes will play at the Division I level, marking the school’s largest group of Division I recruits in the past 10 years.
“We are extremely proud of this group of student-athletes and all they have accomplished,” said AIS Athletics Director Sheila Pauley. “To have 15% of the senior class recruited speaks volumes about their work ethic and commitment to their respective sport.”
The group of 10 includes recent National Letter of Intent signees Rosie Kalis (field hockey – Miami University) and Sarah Platt (lacrosse – University of Virginia); five lacrosse players who have verbally committed to Ivy League schools; two verbally-committed Division III athletes, Ginny Ulichney (volleyball – Tufts University) and Camille Smukler (tennis – Amherst College); and Claire Micheletti, who plans to sign her National Letter of Intent in February to play soccer at Colgate University.
“Agnes Irwin is fortunate to have such good role models for our younger student-athletes,” Pauley said. “ AIS has benefited tremendously from their dedication to our programs.”
This year’s anticipated recruits from Agnes Irwin are: Kristin Burnetta, Harvard – lacrosse (verbal commit); Emily Fryer, Brown – lacrosse (verbal commit); Rosie Kalis, Miami University (Ohio) – field hockey; Hannah Keating, Harvard – lacrosse (verbal commit); Claire Micheletti, Colgate – soccer (verbal commit); Laura Pansini, Princeton – lacrosse (verbal commit); Sarah Platt, University of Virginia – lacrosse; Camille Smukler, Amherst – tennis (verbal commit); Ginny Ulichney, Tufts – volleyball (verbal commit); and Kate White, Dartmouth – lacrosse (verbal commit).
