Athletes, Dancers Sign with Colleges

Varsity basketball ace Samantha Serrano, Bergen County Rowing Academy standout Trinity Savage, and world class dance champions Karis Cho, Alexandra Nicholas, and Gianna Pasquale just told the Academy of the Holy Angels where they will be playing/dancing during their college years.


At their high-energy May 9 signing ceremony, Varsity Dance Co-Captain Karis Cho signed with Penn State, Alexandra Nicholas signed with Georgia Tech, Gianna Pasquale and Trinity Savage signed with Sacred Heart, and Sam Serrano signed with Florida Southwestern.

Trinity Savage signs with help from some friends.


Savage said her biggest accomplishment as a crew team member was securing a Division 1 offer after only participating in her sport for a few months. Just a few days before her signing, she received second place honors at the Philadelphia Rowing Association’s City Championship.


Sam Serrano celebrates with Coach Sue Liddy.

Serrano made AHA’s record books on January 2, when she scored her 1,000th career point. She was subsequently named First Team All-County, and was invited to play in the Bergen/Passaic All Star Game on March 23. She also played in the North/South Senior Game at Rutgers Prep.

Alexandra Nicholas, Karis Cho, and Gianna Pasquale sign their letters of intent. Looking on are Head Dance Coach Jenny Sweet (left) and Coach Alyssa Aponte Mecca (AHA ’12).

Athletic Director Jessica Hogan and Head Dance Coach Jenny Sweet organized the well-attended signing, which drew coaches, faculty, staff, and plenty of friends.
