Meet the seven Pingry seniors—equally committed in the classroom as they are in their sport—who earned this year's conference, county, Prep, and state honors. 

Student Athletes Head to College Teams

Twenty-three Pingry seniors will take their athletic skills to college teams next year. This group of talented student-athletes will head off to 18 new campuses in the fall to play 12 different sports for some of the nation's premier college athletics programs. Two of these seniors will play at Division I schools, which required signed national letters of intent, but many more will also be playing at other top Division II and III athletics programs around the country.

Big Blue's 2019 graduates will represent the following sports in college: football (3), lacrosse (6), squash (2), soccer (1), swimming (3), track & field (3), field hockey (1), softball (1), golf (2), rugby (1), wrestling (1), and crew (1). (Note that some athletes plan to play multiple sports in college.) Below is a list of these 23 seniors and their schools, and above is a fun group photo of everyone proudly sporting their college gear. 

Congratulations to all of our seniors, who will continue their sport at the next level. Go Big Blue student athletes!
