Alumni Anna Ludkiewicz Named NEC Rookie of the Week

Anna Ludkiewicz ’19 was named NEC Rookie of the Week at Sacred Heart University as she notched her first collegiate goal in the nick of time in the Pioneers’ conference lidlifter at Merrimack. The rookie’s game-winning tally came with only 2:34 left in regulation by taking a long pass in the middle of the field, dribbling through a duo of defenders before finding the back of the net for the 2-1 win.

Cauley Signs Letter of Intent to Mount Mercy, Soccer Program

The MacDuffie School gathered in the library Thursday afternoon to celebrate and witness a long-time MacDuffie student-athlete sign her National Letter of Intent.

Ryleigh Cauley, a senior from Granby, Mass. signed her letter of intent to Mount Mercy in Iowa. Cauley intends to major in biology or pursue a double major in biology and chemistry with the goal of becoming a physician’s assistant.

Cauley will also join Mount Mercy’s Division I NAIA soccer program this fall.

“I am looking forward to the college experience as well as getting to play soccer at a higher level,” Cauley said.

Cauley has been a student at The MacDuffie School since 2014 and a three-sport varsity athlete for the majority of that experience. She enjoyed both the success of major championships on the team level and individual accolades for her athletic performance.

 

The soon-to-be graduate was joined at the ceremony by close and extended family, friends, teammates, and coaches. MacDuffie Athletic Director Meirion George, who opened the ceremony, remarked he was proud of Cauley’s achievements both academic and athletic and commended Cauley for her leadership as team captain.
