This year, seven of the Trinity Hall seniors signed athletic commitments and national letters of intent to Division I and Division III colleges. Trinity Hall is very proud to have prepared these young women for the next step in their academic and athletic careers. This group includes:
Gianna Cofone, Hamilton College Women’s Swimming
Victoria Conrad, Fairfield University Women’s Crew
McLane Gmelich, Dartmouth College Women’s Swimming
Alex Popham, Rutgers University Women’s Lacrosse
Peyton McGuire, University of Chicago Women’s Lacrosse
Isabella Scanapicco, Lehigh University Women’s Golf
Juliet Vanucci, Rosemont College Women’s Basketball
Isabella Scanapicco is excited that her determination has paid off. She said, “I am so happy to have found my home for the next four years and I have worked super hard to get here and so have the rest of us. I can’t wait to see what we all do in the future!”
“I’m so excited to be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Chicago,” McGuire said. “I am very grateful for this opportunity, and all of the support that Trinity Hall has given me for the past four years. Trinity Hall has given me a top-tier education where I acquired the essential skills to succeed as I enter my college career and beyond, and I will forever hold that close to my heart.” Peyton is very thankful for the preparation Trinity Hall has given her.
Gianna Cofone is also extremely appreciative of the Trinity Hall community’s support.
“I am so unbelievably thankful to Trinity Hall for giving me the opportunity to continue my academic and collegiate swimming at Hamilton,” Cofone said. “Also, being able to sign in front of such a supportive community is a day that every athlete dreams of. I cannot wait to see all of the future amazing and talented female athletes that Trinity Hall produces.”
Victoria Conrad is happy to have been recognized by the Trinity Hall community.
“I feel honored to have been celebrated by and have the opportunity to showcase my hard work and dedication to the Trinity community,” Conrad said.
“It has been a dream of mine since I was younger to become a collegiate athlete,” said Vanucci. “I am grateful for the opportunity to attend Rosemont as they have made this dream a reality for me. I appreciate all of the support Trinity has given me over the years during my journey as a student-athlete.”
“I’m so excited to continue my swimming career during college,” said Gmelich. “My visit to Dartmouth showed me that swimming is not an individual sport but a team sport, just like Trinity did my freshman year. The athletics, academics, and community at Dartmouth made my commitment an easy decision and although I’m sad to leave such an amazing swim team at Trinity, I am so happy that I got to be a part of it and continue swimming for the next four years. Go Monarchs and go Big Green!”
The Trinity Hall Class of 2023 enthusiastically celebrated the success of their fellow classmates on this day, and they await more exciting news as additional college commitments are announced.
