DARIEN — Like any college graduate, I take pride in my alma mater, Union College. It is a small liberal arts school with a strong Division III sports program near Albany.
If you hadn’t heard of it before, you probably did this past April after the little engine that could won the NCAA championship in hockey, the one sport in which it competes at the Division I level.
And like any alumnus, I always take pleasure in discovering which local high school students are headed to the scenic campus, or at least are interested in applying. Admittedly, I take a little more note if that person happens to be an athlete.
Nick Williams, one of the stars of the St. Joseph baseball team, will be a Dutchman starting next month. Recently, someone told me about a girl from Darien named Caroline McGuire, a lacrosse player and incoming freshman.
