Eight Greens Farms Academy student-athletes were honored on Wednesday as part of the school’s first group commitment ceremony, celebrating their successful quests to play sports at the next level.
The event honored GFA students who received pre-admission commitments and assurances from Division I and II colleges in the form of National Letters of Intent, "likely letters" from Ivy League institutions, and other official documentation.
Friends and family members were on hand to celebrate.
The athletes who were honored on Wednesday included: field hockey player Autumn Bartush (Merrimack); her twin brother Mike Bartush, a wrestler (Bucknell); tennis player Emily Callahan (Villanova); baseball players Trace Florio (Lafayette) and Jason Hernandez (Boston College); sailor Katherine McNamara (Brown); wrestler Marcus Murabito (North Carolina); and rower Lilly Sutter (Virginia).
GFA Head of School Bob Whelan and athletic director Eric Lee look forward to acknowledging additional recruited student-athletes as they gain acceptance into their selected colleges.
