SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- After graduating Sweet Briar College, with all manner of academic and athletic accolades to her credit, Alex St. Pierre (So. Hamilton, Mass./Pingree School) is set to study Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. SBC's 2012 Presidential Medalist will not, however, begin straight away. St. Pierre deferred graduate studies until fall 2013. In the interim, she will train and compete with her aging steed, Adian.
The pre-vet and classical languages major started in all 15 games for the Vixens during her senior year. St. Pierre also scored two goals and tallied two assists on the season. Over her career, the defender turned forward and two-time captain was named to several All-ODAC squads, including most recently being voted to the All-ODAC Field Hockey Second Team in 2012.
St. Pierre, a noted Star Wars fanatic, fully immersed herself in the Sweet Briar campus. In addition to serving as the Class of 2012 President, St. Pierre held the office of Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) President and played a vital roll in developing the Vixen Athletics and Special Olympics relationship. St. Pierre also found time for directing the Sweet Tones a capella group and working as an admissions docent.
