Four Inducted to 2022 Wall of Fame

Four of Holy Innocents’ all-time best athletes join the Wall of Fame for 2022. The Wall of Fame was established in 2008; it recognizes and honors outstanding varsity athletes, coaches and/or contributors who have demonstrated excellence in their athletic pursuits.

The four inductees included Arden Birdwell, Erika Cassell, Haley Collins and Chelsea Zoller.

The former athletes receive a commemorative plaque ­— a replica of the one displayed on the Wall of Fame in the Main Gym — as well as a “free ticket for life” to any HIES sporting event.

Arden Birdwell ‘12 — Lacrosse
Arden Birdwell is our all-time leading scorer in lacrosse at HI –  she was First Team All-American in 2011 and 2012, and First Team All-State for three of her four years. At Georgia, her squad won the national title in 2012 and she was named National Attack MVP in the process. She was also a WCLA First Team All-American, was the Southeastern Women’s Lacrosse League MVP in 2011, and her Dawgs were league champions in 2013, 2015 and 2016. She lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she currently works for a fintech company.

Erika Cassell '16 — Basketball 

Erika Cassell’s basketball career at HIES included a team state championship, one runner-up finish and two Final Four slots. During this, she stayed among the top in the individual stat charts in both scoring and rebounding. Moving on to play at N.C. State, her teams had two Sweet 16 appearances, had the most wins (101) in her four-year class (48) in school history, and the most home wins. Currently, Ms. Cassell is the VP of Citibank Global Operations and Issue Management in Tampa, Fla., where she has lived for more than two years.

Haley Collins '16 — Volleyball
Haley Collins rewrote the volleyball record books while at HI as she is first all-time in career digs, total kills and kills per game, and is fourth in career aces. A four-year starter, her teams won three state titles, and, in the process, she was GHSA Player of the Year twice (2013 in Class A, 2015 in AA), was All-State 2013, 2014 and 2015, and was also named by the GVCA as an All-Star selection (2015). She graduated from Alabama magna cum laude and lives in Atlanta; she’s working for NCR Corporation in hospitality sales and marketing.

Chelsea Zoller ‘16 — Track
Chelsea won four state titles while at HI – three in the 400-meter run and another in the 300-hurdles. At Georgia, she ran a relay leg of one of the best 4 X 4 teams in UGA history, has a top-five record in the 400-hurdles, was SEC Academic Honor Roll every year, and was selected as a track representative for the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, where athletes voice their opinions regarding life as a student athlete. She works at Merrill Lynch in Atlanta after earning a double-major in finance and management.

Congratulations to all!
