Rachel Morin, a senior from Chepachet, Rhode Island, signed her National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field for Stonehill College on Friday, November 18.
Over her time at Marianapolis, Morin has focused on the high jump as her main event. She currently holds the school record for the high jump at 5 feet 2 inches. In addition to track and field, Morin also competes on the girls' varsity soccer team, which recently reached the semi-finals of the NEPSAC Class C Tournament.
On signing with Stonehill, Morin said, "I am very excited to continue my track and field as well as my academic career at Stonehill College. I am very grateful to my coaches, Coach DiCicco and Coach Howard, for their constant support on and off the track. Lastly, I am thankful to the Marianapolis community for helping me reach my full potential."
"Rachel is an accomplished and hardworking student-athlete and we are incredibly proud of her,” said track and field head coach David DiCicco. “Setting the school record last season, she has not only raised the bar in her event, but she has also contributed immensely to academic and community life at Marianapolis. We are excited for Rachel to continue to be a leader this spring and, after commencement, cheer on her success at Stonehill."
Marianapolis track and field assistant coach Wes Howard said, "In addition to her competitive success, Rachel has been the model of consistency and diligence since her first day on the track. She sets a positive example for her peers by approaching every workout and every competition like a seasoned professional. We've been truly blessed to have her in our program, couldn't be prouder of what she does and who she is, and are thrilled that she's found the right fit for the next phase of her jumping career."
Stonehill College, located in North Easton, Massachusetts, is a Division I school playing in the Northeast Conference (NEC).
