Sports helped ease the transition for Chloe Lewison when she enrolled at St. Edmond entering her freshman year.

Lewison, who grew up in Sioux City, quickly found her new home within the walls of the school and the athletic fields she would play on.

“Being an athlete gave me opportunities to fit right in as if I’ve gone there since kindergarten,” Lewison said. “From rain delays to what seems like forever-long practices, I have created some unforgettable memories with these girls.”

A three-sport standout, Lewison has signed to play volleyball at Minnesota West in the fall. She tallied 56 kills and had 18 aces while serving 92 percent this year for the Gaels.

Over her career, Lewison had 61 kills, served 193-for-208 with 67 assists, 64 digs and 23 aces.

“Being a Gael athlete has been an honor and I’ve created so many memories and bonds that I will carry with me for the rest of my life,” she said. “I’m so thankful for the tight-knit community we have at St. Edmond to support me throughout the years.”

Lewison has 28 career hits and 18 RBI on the diamond for the Gael softball team, helping them reach the regional final a year ago.

“If I could go back and give my freshman self advice, I would tell myself that all of the two-a-days in the summer for volleyball, early mornings for softball as well as the countless hours on the putting green will eventually pay off,” Lewison said. “The amount of time you put into something reflects the outcome of the match, game and meet.”

Along with playing volleyball, golf and softball, Lewison was also involved in Respect for Life and Mentoring at St. Edmond.
