Division III and Division I athletes celebrate college commitments

The Colorado Academy Class of 2021 overcame the hurdles presented by a pandemic during their Senior year and distinguished themselves with their commitments to play collegiate sports at the Division I and Division III levels.

On April 29, Director of Athletics Bill Hall honored the Division III athletes and thanked the coaches, teachers, advisors, and parents who helped them achieve success. He praised the student-athletes for their achievements, not just in competitive sports, but also in the classroom, Jazz Band, REDI Lab, HOPE, Portfolio Art Shows, Choir, and on Community Leadership Teams.

Proud parents stood on the sidelines of the event, as Head of School Dr. Mike Davis reminded the students how much parents do to support all aspiring athletes. He described the students’ achievement as a “testament to your dedication during high school.”

Hall recognized each athlete who will go on to play a Division III collegiate sport.

  • Chloe Brants will play field hockey at Tufts University.
