Bishop Gorman Student Athletes Announce Next Steps | Education & Schools
A number of students from Bishop Gorman High School announced their college plans Wednesday.
Equestrian star Kayla Hillegas is getting a full-ride scholarship to Kansas State. She is ranked third in the country in the equestrian event known as reigning. It is where a rider is judged on the difficulty of the pattern they can guide their horse on.
"It is amazing. I am the first equestrian to sign at Gorman. So, I am very excited," Hillegas said.
Adam Wozniak is a 6-foot-5 left-handed pitcher, who has pitched his way to a scholarship at Portland University.
"All my hard work is finally paying off after all these years," Wozniak said. "Sometimes, people only focus on the more important people, and those people just get left in the shadows. It is good to have your own shining moment.”
Angelika Pawlowski is a soccer goalie on her way to Catawba College in North Carolina. She also has Polish citizenship and just got back from playing goalie for the Polish National Team. Pawlowski has her eye on playing in the Olympics one day.
