Saints with Scholarships

As the 2018-2019 school year enters its final semester, Seniors are bidding farewell to their sports teams. There are, however, a select amount of Seniors that are not just done yet with their career in athletics. These students vary from within the gridiron to the soccer pitch. They exemplify excellence not only on the field but also the classroom and caught the eye of college recruiters.

Emma Feller, who plays goalie for Xavier Girls Soccer and for club teams has been presented the opportunity to attend Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. Emma Feller was verbally committed to play soccer for Saint Mary’s College since the Junior year! For Emma, getting noticed in her Junior year demonstrated how well she performed on the field and in the classroom; chances were slim to none to be scouted at such a young age. “The competitiveness is a huge factor, especially in my club team. There are a lot of girls that want to play soccer in college but not many spots,” said Emma. Emma is set on furthering her education and soccer career at Saint Mary’s College and is focused on the future. Emma was ecstatic to receive her scholarship because she finally felt all the work paid off. Emma Feller expressed gratitude for her teammates, teachers, and coaches for sticking with her through her entire high school career.

Xavier College Prep’s Fabrice Voyne is taking his talents to the west coast to keep playing football. Fabrice was offered to play for schools like William & Mary, Utah State, UC Davis, Portland State, Idaho, Harvard, Columbia, Cal Poly, Brown, BYU, and Army West Point.  Fabrice Voyne worked tirelessly his whole high school tenure to play college football, and, like Emma, his hard work paid off. He was offered a scholarship to play for Army West Point and accepted it. “I feel prepared to play at the college level because I’ve competed with players that will be playing at the collegiate level when I have gone to football camps,” said Fabrice. Fabrice is grateful for his scholarship to West Point. The possibility to keep playing football inches him closer to the dream to play in the NFL. To Fabrice, he believes his performance in the classroom outshined performances on Friday nights. With an accumulated GPA of 4.1, he believes that his grades were what made him stand out as a student-athlete.

Even though it is a sad sight to see this year’s Seniors leave, I hope and pray these athletes to bring with them the morals and education Xavier has provided for them. This Senior year class is blessed with terrific teenagers and are destined for success. Go set the World on Fire Saints.
