Hometown Hero: Grace Connolly

Hometown Hero

This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is La Salle’s Grace Connolly.

The senior helped the Rams take home their twelfth straight RIIIL Indoor Track title by earning top-four finishes in three individual distance events.

The indoor crown was the fifth team title Connolly has been a part of since she moved to La Salle from Barrington after her freshman year.

Grace’s success on the track and in the classroom has earned her the chance to run next fall at Columbia University.
