Bronze and gold. The worldwide network of the Sacred Heart schools celebrates the achievements of 17-year-old Lia Neal from the Convent of the Sacred Heart and 15-year-old Katie Ledecky of Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart who both medaled for the US Women's swim team.
Lia won the bronze in the 4 x 100 Freestyle Relay, and Katie became the youngest US Olympian to win gold in her 800 Freestyle race.
Supported along the way, the Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart in Omaha welcomed and cheered for the girls during the United States Olympics trials, and students from Roehampton Primary School of the Sacred Heart in Roehampton, London welcomed the girls with a letter when they arrived at the Olympic Village where the two were roommates.
Sacred Heart Schools around the world are very proud to share in the achievement of the girls and to witness the support from the Network, as it is exemplary of the Sacred Heart motto: "Cor unum et anima una in Corde Jesu" - One heart and one mind in the heart of Jesus.
