At NDP, students are able to get involved in many different ways, whether it be through clubs, sports or student government.

However, there are several students who have gone above and beyond the traditional norm and have achieved things most teens do not.  

Collin Taylor 

  • Senior Collin Taylor has his own business and clothing line called “Jonny Blaze Clothing.” 
  • He has incorporated many of our own students at NDP as models for his clothing line. He has even had Super Bowl winner D.J. Foster from the New England Patriots to represent his brand.
  • His brand focuses primarily on shirts like baseball tees, long sleeves, short sleeves and sweatshirts.

Eddie Eberle  

  • Junior Eddie Eberle has created his own band called the “Analog Outlaws.”  He has performed all over Arizona, including several clubs, competitions and festivals.
  • Not only has the “Analog Outlaws” performed in Arizona but the band have traveled down to Rocky Point, where they played at a restaurant called Banditos.
  • His most recent performance was at “AZ Bike Week 2017,” where he performed on stage with singer Bret Michaels.

Mason Quagliata

  • Sophomore Mason Quagliata recently competed and won the boys 14-15 Drive, Chip, and Putt National Title at the Augusta Nationals in Georgia.
  • According to Quagliata, he advanced through the local qualifying in June at The Phoenician Golf Club, a sub-regional qualifying at Grayhawk Golf Club in May and finally a regional qualifying at Riviera Country Club in October to become on of the 20 finalists in the Boys 14-15 age group.

Sam Barrett

  • Barrett is known around school to help a lot outside of the Notre Dame community, primarily involving service. She has won several awards from the Theology Department for her accomplishments and is one of the four recipients of NDP’s Mater Dei Award, the highest recognition for seniors.
  • According to Mary Lou Lachvayder, “Samantha has 440 approved Christian Service hours. Eighty-eight percent are faith-based through St. Bernard’s. The rest are community-based at Maggie’s Place, Chrysalis Center, for the Back-to-School Clothing drive as well as HopeKids Day.”
  • This is a exceptional accomplishment considering the minimum number of hours each student needs at the end of their four years is 125.

Caroline Strolic

  • Caroline Stolic has been swimming since she was 6 years old.  When she was only 8, she went to the state swimming competition, the youngest ever at the time.
  •  She has lettered all four years of high school and has recently signed to swim at the University of Maine.
  • Strolic is excited to be able to swim at a D1 school because she has worked hard and has had to make many sacrifices over the years in order to be at every single practice for school or for her club.

Taylor Culver

  • Senior Taylor Culver has played on the varsity soccer team since her freshman year and has won two state championships.  She officially signed to play for the Santa Clara State University Broncos in May 2016.
  • This is a huge accomplishment for Taylor, who has been playing soccer all her life, to be given this opportunity to play for a D1 ranked school.

Andrew Nadolski

  • Nadolski has played football at Notre Dame Prep all four years.
  • After several college visits, Nadolski has decided to attend Stetson University in DeLand, Florida, on a Division 1 football scholarship. He signed his letter of intent Feb. 1.
