Ileana Rodriguez, Fort Worth Country Day graduate signs with Haverford College


Fort Worth Country Day field hockey star Ileana Rodriguez has inked a letter of intent to attend Haverford College.

Rodriguez was recently one of four Country Day student-athletes to make their college choices public at a school-sponsored event.  

“Congratulations to our four Falcons taking their sport to the next level, Laney Bagwell, Crew, Colby College; Henry Lynn, Cross Country and Track and Field, University of Chicago; Reese Nelson, Swimming, Washington and Lee University and Ileana Rodriguez, Field Hockey, Haverford College,” members of the Fort Worth Country Day alumni posted on Facebook. “We are excited to cheer you on.”

A 4’ 11” midfielder, Rodriguez is known as a late bloomer. She had never played the sport prior to arriving at Country Day as an eighth-grader and missed her entire sophomore season due to injury.

“I have played at FWCD for three years, and I’m part of the Lone Star club team,” Rodriguez told Falconquil.com. “I’m so glad that I came to Fort Worth Country Day and started playing when I did because not only would I have missed out on such fun times with my friends playing sports, but I also wouldn’t be going to college for field hockey.”
