We are proud to announce that Lauren Mabie '18 signed her letter of intent Thursday to swim for Texas Christian University! Lauren has been swimming since she was ten years old and has set multiple records along the way. She set the record in the 100 IM as a sophomore, anchored the 400 free relay to its best State finish ever and has been a Best of Preps nominee or finalist all through high school. Lauren was part of the record breaking, gold medal, 200 medley relay team for State and the silver medalist in the 100 breaststroke. She made history for St. Mary's with her second place finish at the State Championship. Wishing you much success as you join TCU Athletics next fall!
St. Mary's senior Evelyn Roberts '18 signed her letter of intent today to play lacrosse for the University of Richmond. Evelyn has played St. Mary's lacrosse since 7th grade. She has been named as an All-Region lacrosse player since the 8th grade, made All-State the last 3 years, and the last 2 years has been an All-American.
