Menlo student-athletes sign letters to play in college

 

Menlo School is pleased to announce that three student-athletes have signed national letters of intent and are set to play intercollegiate sports as they continue their studies next season.

Sophia Donovan is headed to USC to play lacrosse, Griff McGarry to the University of Virginia for baseball and Lindsey Miller to the University of North Carolina for rowing.

As other Menlo student-athletes complete the admissions process, they will be announced.

​Sophia Donovan (USC lacrosse)

As a sophomore, Donovan verbally committed to the Trojans, who are coming off a 20-1 overall record and a trip to the NCAA Division I semifinals.

Donovan was twice named league MVP-midfielder. As a sophomore, she finished with six goals and three assists in Menlo's league championship win over Sacred Heart Prep, and was named to The USA Today all-USA Northern California team. She was injured her junior year.

​Griff McGarry (Virginia baseball)

​As a junior, McGarry​ led Menlo School to a 24-7 record and a Central Coast Section title, its first since 2011. The right-hander and middle infielder had a pair of hits in the championship game and started the Knights' CCS quarterfinal victory.

Lindsay Miller (North Carolina rowing)

As a junior, Miller rowed as a novice at Norcal Crew, and over the summer, was selected to row with a Philadelphia club, Penn AC Rowing Association. She stayed at Penn for five weeks, and raced at the Independence Day Regatta as well as Club Nationals in Ohio. Miller also played soccer for Menlo as an underclassman.
