Three seniors at The Summit Country Day School were recognized for advancing their academic and athletic careers to the collegiate level on Nov. 10 during a ceremony in St. Cecilia Hall.
Abby Moore, New Richmond, will study and play field hockey at Miami University. Mila Brusch, Forest Park, will study and be a gymnast for The University of Denver. Katie Corrigan, Maineville, will study and play soccer at Walsh University.
Ms. Moore was an offensive force for the Silver Knights’ field hockey team this year, tallying 11 goals and six assists. The senior captain was the Southwest Ohio Field Hockey League’s offensive player of the year and earned herself a spot on the all-Ohio team. Only 15 players across the state earn that designation.
“She’s a wonderful team player,” coach Emily Betz said. “This team had the best morale, and it was all thanks to her and her classmates. She’s an amazing player to coach and I’m going to miss her.”
Coach Betz added that her speed, stick skills and positioning on the field will make her an asset to the RedHawks’ field hockey team.
“She’s 100 percent ready for the collegiate level,” the coach said.
Ms. Brusch is a two-time level 10 nationals qualifier in 2018 and 2019. She tied for third place on vault and fourth on floor in 2019 (Junior D). Earlier that year she was crowned Ohio state champion in the all around, vault and floor. She scored career highs on vault, bars and floor in 2020.
Ms. Corrigan, a team captain, is a four-time varsity letter winner, a first-team all-Miami Valley Conference performer twice and made the all-Southwest Ohio team and all-Southwest Ohio academic team twice each. She was a member of the 2021 all-Ohio academic team and was a participant in the 2021 senior all-star game.
In 2020, she was an Enquirer all-star.
“The first thing you notice about Katie is her intensity,” Summit girls’ soccer coach Mike Fee said. “She trains with the same intensity that she plays with on gameday. It helps to raise the competition level in our training sessions. Coach Harring nicknamed her "Choo-Choo" for the constant motion and energy she brought each day. Katie put a lot on her shoulders this season to be the vocal leader of the defense. I am so appreciative of her passion, her determination, her leadership and her love of the sport. Her work ethic and drive is going to serve her well as a collegiate athlete. I will sincerely miss hearing Katie shout ‘GAMEDAY’ from down the hall. We will proudly watch her collegiate career unfold over the next four seasons.”
