Recent Notable Alumni Athletes
Rachel Kuehn 2019 Selected for Arnold Palmer Cup
Rachel Kuehn 2019, a freshman at Wake Forest University, was named #1 in the 2020 Arnold Palmer Cup rankings and thus selected to be on the 12 person team of the top amateur golfers in the country. Congratulations on this exceptional accomplishment, Rachel. Your Blues community is rooting for you!
Rachel Kuehn 2019 Makes Program History at Wake Forest
Congratulations to Rachel Kuehn 2019, who won an individual title at the September 15 - 18, 2019 ANNIKA Intercollegiate tournament. From Wake Forest University:
"Leading the Deacs was freshman Rachel Kuehn, who became the first player in program history to win an individual title in her collegiate debut. She shot a final round 3-under 69 to finish the tournament at 13-under and post a five-shot win in an event that featured 12 returning All-Americans from 2019. Her 13-under total is a Wake Forest freshman record and the third-best 54-hole total in school history, trailing only the school-record 15-under score that Jennifer Kupcho shot twice (once as a sophomore, once as a junior)."
Samuel Goldstein '16 Earns Podium Finish in 20th Maccabiah Game
In July 2017, Israel hosted the 20th Maccabiah Games, a quadrennial multi-sport event that aims to bring together Jewish athletes from across the world for an Olympic-style competition. Asheville School alumnus Samuel Goldstein traveled to the games to compete in several track events. He competed in the Open category, earning silver medals for team USA in the 1500 Meter Run, 800 Meter Run and 4x400 Meter Relay.
Conor Fenn 2016 Steps Into Division I Wrestling
Conor Fenn '16 steps on to the mat for Davidson College wrestling wearing the customary Wildcats uniform. But there is one addition—Fenn is always sure to go out in his blue knee pads, which he carries from his time wrestling for the Blues. In December of 2019, Fenn was named the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for all competition from Dec. 4-10.
