Rye Country Day (RCDS) seniors Annie Grayer and Clare McClintock, members of the RCDS NYSAISAA state championship Field Hockey team, were named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association’s High School National Academic Squad for 2012-13. Grayer is a Rye resident and McClintock is a Larchmont resident.
The program recognizes outstanding athletic achievement on the field and academic excellence (a minimum 3.5 GPA) in the classroom. RCDS field hockey coach Georgette Summers noted: “Clare and Annie have been outstanding ambassadors for the Rye Country Day field hockey program. On the field and in the classroom, Clare and Annie have consistently raised the bar higher. It is rare to find athletes that have been part of two or three NYSAISAA championship teams, as they were in 2009, 2011 and 2012.”
In the fall, Grayer will attend Middlebury and McClintock will attend Harvard.
