NEWTOWN SQUARE–Three Episcopal Academy student-athletes—Alana Dumas, Kali Kilmer, and Matt Rushton—officially made college destinations known on Feb. 6, bringing the total number of Division I commitments in this year’s EA senior class to 24.
Dumas and Kilmer, both senior forwards, signed national letters to attend the University of Michigan and Providence College, respectively. Dumas and Kilmer were key performers for the 2012 Episcopal Academy field hockey team that finished with a 23-2 record, defeated its archrival Notre Dame in the PAISSA state tournament championship game, and was ranked No. 7 in the nation according to the top-of-the-circle blog.
Rushton, a 2013 first-team All-Inter-Ac defensive back for EA, announced that he will be attending Villanova as a preferred walk-on. Rushton was a key cog in an EA defense that allowed just 35 points in 10 games for the Churchmen (10-0 in 2012).
These three seniors—Dumas, Kilmer and Rushton—join an impressive list of EA student-athletes who signed back in November as well as a group of EA kids who announced their Ivy League destinations just before Christmas.
