Blue Raider trio of Fegley, Guckavan and Fitzpatrick makes college choices official

Posted

Three Middletown Area High School seniors signed letters of intent Nov. 13 to play college sports.

Luke Fegley will wrestle at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. He made it to the PIAA Class 2A state wrestling championships last season and wrapped up his year with a 40-6 record. He has 95 wins total in his career. He took second at districts and third at regionals, and was a second-team Mid-Penn Conference Capital Division All-Star.

Kiera Guckavan will play field hockey at Rider University in Lawrence Township, New Jersey. She had 8 goals on the season for the Blue Raiders and helped lead Middletown to five wins in the season that just ended, their most since 2011.

Kate Fitzpatrick will attend Millersville University to play basketball and softball. The second-team all-state basketball player already is one of the leading scorers in the history of the Blue Raider basketball program. She is a three-year starter and a two-year captain who scored 461 points last season, giving her 1,251 for her career. That’s third on the list of all-time leading girls scorers, and she might catch all-time leader Ja’Lynn Burton-Jones (1,586 points). She was named to the Mid-Penn Conference Capital Division All-Stars first team.

She is also a three-year varsity starter at shortstop for the Blue Raiders and was one of three captains last season. In 19 games, she had 26 hits, including five doubles, a Mid-Penn-leading eight triples, and three home runs (including a grand slam). Her 25 RBIs put her among the leaders in the conference, and she had a .433 batting average. She was a Mid-Penn Conference first-team all-star in the Capital Division.
