World renowned speed coach, IMG Academy's Director of Track and Field and Cross Country, Loren Seagrave addressed more than 165 college commitments as keynote speaker at the 2013 IMG Academy College Commitment Ceremony

On Thursday, May 23, IMG Academy commemorated 168 of its student-athletes who committed to the colleges of their choice at a special ceremony at the State College of Florida’s Neel Performing Arts Center.

 

Over the past several years, IMG Academy has sent more than 60% of its student-athletes to Division I schools, while less than 6% of student-athletes nationally play sports at the D-I, II or III level.

 

Some of the most notable student-athletes’ achievements in this year’s graduating class include:

 

Tommy Hamilton, a native of Chicago, Ill., is a highly touted center/forward prospect who will move on to the Big East Conference after signing with DePaul University.

 

Rina Hill, a native of Nagoya-Shi, Japan, signed with Louisiana State University after helping lead the IMG Academy women’s basketball team to a 42-8 overall record, with a 7-2 record against junior colleges. Rina averaged 12.8 points per game, while pulling down 51defensive rebounds and notching 51steals.

 

Ryan Dance has the distinction of being the first college commitment of the first-year IMG Academy lacrosse team, and will head to prestigious Ithaca College. This season, Dance overcame injury to help lead the team to an astounding 11-1 inaugural season.

 

Jordan Lippetz achieved accolades on and off the links during her time at IMG Academy, earning 2012 IMG Junior Golf Tour Player of the Year honors, and being named an HP Scholastic Junior All-American in the fall. Lippetz is ranked by Golfweek as the No. 11 player in the state of Florida (No. 75 nationally), and will join the Princeton University ladies’ golf program.

 

Rigel Fernandes is the top-ranked player in India, and will join the reigning Big East champion University of South Florida men’s golf program as Golfweek’s No. 17-ranked prospect for the Class of 2013.

 

Apichaya Runglerdkriangkrai, a native of Thailand, will join the 22-time West Coast Conference champion Pepperdine Waves ladies tennis program.

 

Diego Pedraza, a native of Bogota, Colombia, competed as an amateur and won his first professional event at the Mexico F3 Futures in February, which resulted in reaching a career-high ranking of No. 35 ITF. Pedraza will take his talents to the Ivy League as a member of the Dartmouth University men’s tennis team.

 

Brett Hanewich, a third baseman and right-handed pitcher, signed with Stanford University. Hanewich was named as 2nd Team Rawlings/Perfect Game All-American entering his senior season. His sister, Corey Hanewich, is a member of the Cardinal softball team.

 

Pablo Aguilar, a Guatemala native who came to IMG Academy as a freshman in 2009,committed to the No. 17-ranked University of Virginia. Aguilar is ranked as the top midfielder and No. 2 overall soccer player in the state of Florida for the Class of 2013, according to Top Drawer Soccer.

 

Hannah Howell, a native of Bradenton, Fla.,committed to the No. 17-ranked Georgetown University Hoyas. The attacking midfielder led the IMG Academy U18 girls team and was named as the Bradenton Herald’s ‘All-Area Player of the Year’ for girls soccer.

 

 

Listed below is the complete list of seniors and post-grads who have committed to colleges throughout the 2012-13 academic year. A number of IMG Academy student-athletes remain uncommitted, and will be added to this list once they make their final selections.
