Three Ursuline seniors recently signed letters of intent to compete in college athletics next year. Caroline Afonso will throw the shotput for Northeastern University’s D1 track and field team. Siobhan O'Sullivan will also compete in shotput at D1 Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, and Caleigh Wukitch will swim at Kenyon College, a D3 school in Gambier, Ohio.
Afonso, a resident of West Roxbury, captained the indoor track team her senior year. She captained the volleyball team her junior and senior years, and was selected to the All-State Volleyball team in 2018.
O’Sullivan, a resident of Quincy, is a member of the varsity basketball team as well as track and field. Siobhan holds the school record in both indoor and outdoor shot put, and the record for indoor and outdoor shot put relay along with Afonso and MacKenzie Enos ‘18.
Wukitch, of Needham, holds school records in the 200 medley relay, the 200 individual medley, the 100 backstroke, and the 400 freestyle relay. Her efforts in these events helped bring the team to a third-place finish at the state meet in 2019.
Ursuline Academy commends these students and their families for the hard work and perseverance that brought them such success.
