47 SCDS alumni compete at college level

Mike Barwick, Jr. ’14 finished his undergraduate degree in management from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University but remained through the football season to finish his last year of eligibility.

While The Summit Country Day School’s rigorous curriculum opens doors at colleges and universities across the country, Summit athletes are in even stronger demand. 47 alumni athletes are currently competing at the collegiate level this academic year.

“Not only do our coaches do a phenomenal job in developing the skills of their players, but beyond skilled players, college teams need players who also boost the team grade point average,” said Head of School Rich Wilson. “That’s another reason Summit athletes are in demand at the collegiate level. College coaches also know our athletes are trained to be leaders of character who enhance the dynamics of their teams. There are not behavioral worries with Summit athletes.”
