Christine is prepared for the challenges ahead at Tufts. “I had the opportunity to not only belong to a successful volleyball program, but also to a support system with never-ending love and encouragement. Being a part of the Marian community, I have always been motivated to work my hardest and never give up keeping in mind that my Marian family was with me through every obstacle and every achievement. This sense of community allowed me to be successful in my endeavors and have no fear of challenges I may face, as I was never facing them alone,” she said.
Kate, daughter of Kristen and Peter Biglin of Bloomfield Hills, is looking ahead to playing field hockey as a forward and studying pre-med at Central Michigan University next fall. She was named DI First Team All-State 2018 and 2019, DI First Team All-State and All-Academic 2019, Dream Team 2019, DI First Team All-Catholic 2018 and 2019.

Kate’s other sports involvements include Marian’s varsity soccer team and she also participated in travel soccer and field hockey leagues over her high school years.
Lauren, daughter of Christine and Greg Sielichi of Clarkston, will be joining Boston College’s swim team to compete in backstroke and butterfly next fall. She also plans to study nursing. Lauren started swimming on the Marian varsity team in her freshman year and while on the team earned All-League, All-State, and team captain honors.
