Coach’s Corner: May Wrap Up – 2019

We are pleased to announce that many Norfolk Academy student-athletes in the Class of 2019 have committed to participate in college varsity athletics.  There are a total of 19 student-athletes who will compete in 9 different sports at the NCAA level.   Our Bulldogs have navigated the recruiting process and have found the perfect college “fit” that blends academic, athletic and social needs for each particular student-athlete.  A tremendous amount of hard work and dedication has paid off and they are excited to begin a new chapter in their athletic career.
