Bishop Canevin Twins Choose University of Dayton

Alexis and Charlotte Rakaczky, Carrick residents and graduates of Bishop Canevin High School, have chosen the University of Dayton as the next step in their education process.

They were recognized, by Dayton, for their academic achievements while at Canevin, by awards of more than $72,000 in combined academic scholarships over the course of the next four years.

The “Rakaczky twins” were also accepted at John Carroll, Loyola, Xavier and Catholic Universities where they were awarded scholarships that totaled more than $200,000.

After successful volleyball careers at Bishop Leonard Catholic Grade School and Bishop Canevin High School, as well as The Pittsburgh Three Rivers Junior Olympic Volleyball Club, they did receive the attention of several college volleyball coaches, but decided it was time to “hang up the knee pads” and focus on academics. While leading the play for Bishop Canevin over the past three years, the school had a combined record of 51-8 in Match play, and they both earned WPIAL all-section honors for their play during their senior season.

Alexis and Charlotte received Highest Honor distinctions for all four years at Bishop Canevin, by achieving a grade point average of 95 percent or higher. They have both been active in student government and the school's musical productions.

Two of five children of Charles and Suzan Rakaczky, the sisters both plan on pursuing a career in education. They look forward to continued academic success as Dayton Flyers.
