Central Catholic Swimming
CENTRAL CATHOLIC FAMILY
Katie is from a long line of Central scholar-athletes including dad, Chip MacDonald, and brother, Daniel. Both later played football at Tufts.
Coach Carlton Cronin said, “In our last meet, she was spectacular in the 200 freestyle. She went out fast and hung on. It was the best swim from our team this season.”
The senior scholar from Andover also is a synchronized swimmer.
She won the Dartmouth Book Award and has been accepted to several top schools including UCLA, Cal-Berkeley, NYU and Tufts.
She works at Whole Foods and has two beagles (Susie and Willow).
During the pandemic, Katie taught herself how to play guitar.
Her favorite teacher is English teacher Michael Clements.
Congratulations, Katie! Thank you for all you do for your team, for Central Catholic, and for the greater community.
