It’s obvious that the class of 2021 is talented in the classroom, but what many don’t know is that many seniors are just as talented on the field, on the court, and even in the pool. So far, the senior class has eight future collegiate athletes, and there are more to come.
Aidan Murnane committed to Colgate University for Men’s Lacrosse in eleventh grade. This year will be his fifth year as a varsity long pole defender, and we are excited to see what he will accomplish as a Raider.
Another future Men’s Lacrosse star will be Kyle Proctor, as he will head off to Ithaca College in the fall. #1 will be playing attack for the Bombers, and we are so proud to send him off.
As a junior, Yasmin Hill committed to the University of Wisconsin’s Women’s Diving Team. Her senior year has been full of excited anticipation to head to Madison next year! We can’t wait to see Yasmin do great things as a Badger.
Carnegie Mellon University is very lucky to have Jolie Wasserman join their Women’s Track and Field Team as a thrower. Way to go Jolie, and go Tartans!
Ashleigh Fortunate will be headed to the University of Buffalo to play center midfield on its Women’s Soccer team. We were lucky to have her play her senior year with Briarcliff’s VGS and are super excited to see her do great things as a Bull.
Marc Milano is set to be a catcher for Vassar College’s Men’s Baseball Team. We are sad to see him go but excited to see him kill it as a Brewer!
Catherine Flanagan has committed to Duke University’s Women’s Fencing. Though CatFlan never fenced as a Bear, she is still one of the best athletes to ever set foot in Briarcliff, and we are so excited to see what this future Blue Devil will accomplish.
Jackson Mauro will be leaving behind a legacy as he heads off to St. Lawrence University as a wide receiver for its Men’s Football Team. We can’t wait to root for Jackson and the Saints!
We give well wishes to all of these athletes and thank them for both their commitment to their sport and their commitment to the Briarcliff Community.
