Congratulations to BHS senior Bailey Hackett - who on March 28, 2022, signed her Letter of Intent to wrestle for Lourdes University! "I am so excited," she said, just before signing. "I didn't realize this was my dream until I started wrestling in 9th grade, and I'm excited to see it become reality!" Located in Sylvania, Ohio, Lourdes University’s athletics program sponsors 24 sports and is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The Gray Wolves are members of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC).
Hackett began wrestling as a freshman, winning multiple awards and appearing in multiple district and state tournaments. As a sophomore she was the Ohio High School Wrestling Coaches Association State runner-up. As a junior she placed first in the district tournament and 4th in the girls state tournament. This year, as captain of the wrestling team, she finished second in the district tournament and qualified for a third, consecutive appearance at the OHSWCA state tournament. In addition to wrestling, Bailey has also earned four letters in volleyball and three letters in track. Hackett is a two-time Academic All Ohio honoree for girls wrestling. She is a Senior Mentor, member of the Tot Squad, Interact, SADD, FTA, and is the Treasurer of the National Honor Society and Spanish Club at BHS. Bailey plans to study education at Lourdes University and hopes to one day become a high school science teacher.
Congratulations Bailey, we wish you every success as you embark on this new adventure!
