Congratulations to 8th grader Emily Dowling as she was recently awarded the prestigious All Nashua Catholic Athletic Award! The most prestigious of all athletic awards given out by the school, this award goes to an individual who is a standout three-season athlete, high achieving student, and a well respected member of the Nashua Catholic student body.
Emily was a member of the Wildcat volleyball team in the fall where she was name done of the team captains. She showed great leadership, and a strong work ethic, and would consistently look to work with her teammates to make the entire team better as a single unit. During the Winter season, Emily was a key member of the Lady Wildcat varsity basketball team. Always a tough defender, Emily put in a great amount of work this year to better her offensive skill set. With her hard work in practice, Emily became an offensive threat from long range, while also developing a great dribble drive to get her closer to the hoop. In the Spring season, Emily was a standout athlete on the track team. Whether she was running in the 100m hurdles, 200m, 400m, or doing the high jump, she was also putting in the extra efforts to be successful. At the end of the season, Emily had qualified for the NH State Meet in two separate events, and was the leading scorer on the team in two other events.
In the classroom, Emily was a fantastic student who achieved Principal’s List Honors in each of the four academic quarters this year. A member of the Nashua Catholic Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, Emily was also committed to giving back to her school, and the Greater Nashua Community.
Emily is committed to attend Bishop Guertin High School in the Fall, where she plans to continue volleyball, basketball and running track.
Congratulations Emily and Go Wildcats!
