12 Student-Athletes Honored on Commitment Day

Sacred Heart Greenwich held its annual Commitment Day on Wednesday, December 9, 2020. Twelve student-athletes participated in the ceremony, signaling their intent to play their sport next year at the collegiate DI or DIII level. These students will move on to play in the sport of field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, and soccer. The skills they honed and experiences they had during their time at Sacred Heart have helped to prepare them for the next level. 

Director of Athletics Liz Dennison reflected on the celebration, saying, "It is an impressive and diverse group of student-athletes, spanning a variety of sports and universities across the country. We are so proud of them and their athletic and academic accomplishments. It takes a great deal of dedication and hard work to earn the opportunity to compete as a collegiate student-athlete, and we are excited to follow the next chapter of their careers. "
