Mullaney ’18 to Continue Athletic and Academic Excellence at Harvard
Maddie Mullaney ’18 was recently profiled in the Chelsea Record after signing her letter of intent to attend Harvard and compete for the Crimson’s Division 1 field hockey program. As a Pingree senior, Mullaney is ranked as one of the top high school field hockey players in the country, and she's also earned Honor Roll and Head of School List recognition throughout her high school career.
According to Pingree head field hockey coach Jen Richardson, “Maddie’s story is amazing. She’s fantastic to watch, fun to coach. She has everything you want in an athlete. She’s gritty. She’s hard-working. She’s dedicated. She’ll spend her weekends working out or studying. She’s always asking how she can get better. She spent tons of time outside of the high school arena doing everything she could – tournaments, clinics, camps. She put in the work and she’s being rewarded for that in such a beautiful way.”
“I have always known I wanted to play Division 1,” said Mullaney, “and I was fortunate enough to visit a lot of campuses at a young age, starting in eighth grade. I knew I wanted Division 1, strong academics, and wanted to stay in Boston. We are really lucky to have such strong academic and athletic local schools. Harvard stood out to me because I have always valued being a student first, and then an athlete.”
