February 22, 2024

The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) is delighted to announce that Megan Dadio '24 is among a selection of 180 high school student-athletes from 115 schools for the prestigious 2024 High School Impact Senior Team.

The NFHCA High School Impact Senior Team pays tribute to graduating seniors, celebrating their entire high school athletic careers. It specifically acknowledges individual achievements both on and off the field, highlighting distinguished leadership and service.

To qualify for recognition, student-athletes had to meet three of five character criteria, encompassing aspects such as community service and leadership roles, along with five of ten athletic criteria. Head Varsity Field Hockey Coach, Mrs. Wendy Sheetz '85, immediately thought of Dadio when nominating a student for the prestigious award, saying: 

Megan Dadio is an outstanding student-athlete. She has been a four-year Varsity starter for the Field Hockey team, was a team captain this year, and also wore the "Senior Gold Belt" (a Moravian Academy field hockey tradition started in the 1980s). She is a true leader and role model on the Field Hockey team. A three-sport athlete at Moravian Academy, Dadio excels at Field Hockey, Swimming, and Lacrosse. In addition to her athletic success, she is a student leader in the Class of 2024, is an excellent student, volunteers in her community, and has a job as well. She is very deserving of this recognition from the NFHCA. She is the true representation of an outstanding student-athlete.

The impact of the graduating class of 2024 has been noteworthy, with members contributing significantly to their communities through leadership roles and volunteer work with various charitable organizations. On the field, these seniors have not only showcased success but have also exemplified commendable sportsmanship, with many guiding their teams to postseason competitions.
