Trio of Castilleja student-athletes looking to next level


Castilleja celebrated three senior student-athletes this week who signed a National Letter of Intent to continue their athletic careers next fall.

Celia Aldrete will be playing water polo for the Stags of Claremont McKenna College next year. She played an integral role on the Castilleja water polo team throughout her four years. She helped the team to two PAL Bay Division championships, including the first in program history, and was named the league's MVP this past season.

Maddie Macdonald also will be playing water polo next year, as she has signed to play for the Broncos of Santa Clara University. Macdonald was named to the first team on the 2015 All-PAL Bay Division squad in 2015 and was invited to compete in the Pacific Zone Senior Girls All-Star Game alongside Aldrete.

Julia Lodoen will be taking her soccer skills all the way to the University of Chicago next fall, where she will compete as a Phoenix. This dynamic player was named the MVP of the 2014-15 All-WBAL Skyline Division team after helping the Gators to the division title last season.

University of Chicago and Claremont McKenna are Division III colleges, so there are no letters-of-intent.
