Academy inducts three sisters into Hall of Fame

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy inducted three sisters into its Hall of Fame on Sept. 26 during the school's annual family Mass and fiesta celebration.

Laura MacPherson Fredricks of the Class of 1988, Heather MacPherson Smith of the Class of 1991 and Melissa MacPherson Korn of the Class of 1997 all excelled in swimming and led their academy swim teams to CIF championships. And again following in one another's footsteps, all three attended La Salle University in Philadelphia on swim scholarships.

Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy coaches Kirk Nishiyama and Betsy Sauer, who coached the girls while they were at the academy, lauded the three for their athletic ability, intensity and competitive spirit.
