The girls of St. Mary's Academy varsity soccer team have a lot to celebrate this early in the season. With a recent win against a previously undefeated team, they're officially number three in OSAA's Three River League standings and number eight overall in the state.
Thanks to the generous contributions of our community members, our Spirit Walk fundraiser was able to raise over $125,000. These funds will support academics, athletics, extracurricular and co-curricular activities, as well as financial aid at St. Mary's Academy.
Dedication, perseverance and an insatiable desire to learn and excel are traits that have enabled our 2018 Valedictorian Bea Pickett to succeed throughout her time at St. Mary’s. Bea has displayed a strong sense of focus and determination ever since she stepped foot in SMA as a freshman, and it’s no surprise that these traits have put her at the top of her class and earned her a spot in Yale’s Class of 2022.
When asked what she loves most about St. Mary’s, Salutatorian Kara D’ascenzo said, “I really enjoy that the St. Mary’s community is loving and supportive, and that everybody is also willing to hold you accountable to work hard and challenge yourself. It’s very inspiring to be part of a group of women that are accomplishing great things, which inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.”
