Fall Athletes Committed to Their Future

Fall Athletes Committed to Their Future

The college application for most seniors is a stressful time. This process may come easier for some students at Assumption, primarily those who are choosing to continue their sport at the collegiate level. While they still must apply, similarly to their peers who don’t participate in athletics, the number of colleges to focus on is only one. Check out some of our fall committed athletes who have taken the next step in their athletic journey.

Zoe Thompson (Transylvania University)

Zoe Thompson is in her fourth season of playing varsity level soccer at Assumption, but it doesn’t stop here. After talking with Thompson, she explained how her experience looking for a college was a little more difficult.

“My recruiting process was more difficult than most because it took me from my sophomore year to my senior year to find the right fit for me. I wasn’t worried about the division I was playing in as long as I was on the field playing. Up until the summer going into my senior year I was lost and beginning to lose hope. Then, all of a sudden I got a call from Transy’s coach and everything fell into place.”

Not only did Thompson get the chance to continue her soccer career, but Transylvania University also checked all her other boxes.

“I wanted a school that wasn’t too big with a lot of students because I wanted to feel a more personal connection on campus. I definitely wanted to be out of Louisville but not too far that I can’t come back and visit when I want. Lexington is only an hour away so that’s perfect. I also wanted a school that can lead me on the path of studying physical therapy.”

Leaving Assumption, Thompson feels her team has prepared her to start her next journey playing soccer at the collegiate level.

“Our team is one of the best in the state, so I know how to play as a team while showing quality results because my teammates and coaches have the knowledge and experience to teach me valuable lessons every day.” We know Thompson is going to succeed very well in Lexington!

Lucy Cohen (Transylvania University)


Lucy Cohen, a senior on the Assumption Field Hockey team, spoke to me about her choice to continue her athletic career in college.

“My recruiting process was pretty easy. Once I knew I wanted to try Transylvania, I contacted them, and they immediately showed interest. I visited the school and took a tour. The coach was very kind and made me feel comfortable, so I knew it was the right fit.”

After deciding to explore her options for college field hockey, Cohen considered many factors that non-athletes also consider when choosing a school.

“The main factors for me were the size of the school and the level of connections that was able to be made with the teachers and students.”

Not only does Assumption academics prepare students for college, but Assumption athletics prepares athletes for the collegiate athletic level.

“The Assumption field hockey team has prepared me tremendously for the collegiate level. We have played extremely skilled teams and travel to get better competition. The expectation for AHSFH is also very high. We are expected to give it our all 100% of the time and be ready for anything that is thrown at us. I feel I am prepared to play at a higher level and know I will achieve greatly because of assumption field hockey.”

Assumption couldn’t be prouder of Cohen and know she will accomplish great things at Transylvania.


Charlotte Moriarty (Xavier University)

Charlotte Moriarty had many options when choosing a school. She explained the process of choosing Xavier volleyball over the others.

“My recruiting process was fairly simple. Colleges could reach out to me on June 15 of 2022. I called a lot of colleges, and some I called 3-4 times. Nearing the end of my recruiting process, I narrowed my options to Illinois State, Virginia Tech, Ohio University, and Xavier. I went on a visit to Xavier, they offered me a full ride, and I took it.”

As a senior captain on the volleyball team, furthering her athletic career was a goal she had in mind since she was little.

“I am most excited about the high competition in college. I’m also very excited to help advance Xavier’s volleyball program. I’m mainly excited to compete for a chance to go to the NCAA tournament and to achieve my childhood dreams of being a D1 athlete.”

Like Cohen, Assumption athletics has prepared Moriarty for her future athletic career.

“The Assumption volleyball team is a top tier, national program that competes at the highest of high school levels. This team has prepared me for high-pressure positions, leadership challenges, adversity, and perseverance. This team has taught me how to rely on my teammates, carry my teammates, fall on my face and get back up, lead in desperate situations and handle high stress while balancing a calm and confident persona.”

We wish Moriarty the best of luck!

Committed athletes will continue as the year goes on, and winter and spring sport senior athletes start their final season of high school.
