Souza '23 & Whatley '23 Sign National Letters of Intent
Faye Souza ‘23 and Carolyn Whatley ‘23 have signed National Letters of Intent to compete at the collegiate level. Souza has committed to diving at George Mason University, while Whatley has committed to riding at Wofford College.
Souza began diving just a few years ago, and competes with a club team in Greensboro, NC as well as the School team. In 2022, she traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to participate in the First National Open Diving Championship where she won silver medals in both the one-meter and three-meter competitions.
“Faye was the driving force in the creation of our diving team, and it has been a joy to coach her these past two years. She is a motivated, committed diver and George Mason University is lucky to be gaining such an enthusiastic and talented new team member," said Kate Branciforte, Varsity Diving head coach.
Whatley, a four-year Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) team member, will compete at Wofford as part of the Equestrian Team competing in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. This year she was in the Top 16 Intermediate riders of IEA Zone 3 by qualifying for Zone Finals.
“Carolyn's dedication to riding is evident, and I know that committing to ride at Wofford is the culmination of a lot of hard work, perseverance, and sacrifice. I can't wait to see the continuation of Carolyn's riding career, and all that I know she will achieve at the collegiate level,” said Director of Riding Ally Doyon.
