Senior Olivia Dubin has committed to playing soccer for the College of the Holy Cross next year.
“Having to speak up for yourself and consistently advocate for yourself and describe your accomplishments and how much you want to go there and why you are the right athlete is uncomfortable, but it’s important because no one else is going to do it for you,” she said.
Liam Schofield, a senior and new college commit, will be playing baseball for Union College next year.
“I was sitting on the front porch of admissions, talking to [the coach], and then he offered me, and it was really exciting. You’re supposed to wait a few days after the offer, you’re not supposed to accept right away. I was really tempted to just accept on the spot,” he said.
Senior Grace Penna signed to play soccer at Union College next year, a feat she attributed to her hard work.
“I got an offer that didn’t work out; you can’t get discouraged at that because you’re going to end up where you should end up. You really have to take it into your own hands because it’s not just going to fall in your lap. It’s about who works the hardest for it,” she said.
