RPCS Inducts New Members into Athletic Hall of Fame
On Friday, September 8, 2023, Roland Park Country School proudly inducted eight individuals, one coach and one team into the RPCS Athletic Hall of Fame. The 2023 induction class is the seventh group of inductees to be honored since the inaugural Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006.
“We are gathered this evening to celebrate and honor the incredible athletic achievements of a very special group of student-athletes and coaches who have made a significant impact on the athletic program at RPCS,” Co-Director of Athletics Dani Kell Steinbach, 2004 said at the beginning of the ceremony. “With spirit and pride for this school and their teams and sports, our inductee class strived for excellence in competition, while also showing incredible commitment, work ethic and character that defines what it means to be a RED.”
Congratulations to the RPCS Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2023 Inductees:

  • Daeze Alaeze-Dinma, 2012
  • Audrey Todd, 2012
  • Jane Seibert, P’06, Coach

The evening was a celebration full of inspirational speeches from the inductees and the special people in their lives who they chose to introduce them and shared memories of proud moments with former teammates and coaches. Each inductee shared their gratitude for launching their athletic careers in an environment that fostered a spirit of dedication, competition and camaraderie.
"In sports, you realize that every day, every minute, every second matters," said Barbara Seaman, 2006, a new inductee. "I learned to appreciate every moment, that the real victories aren’t always reflected in the scoreboard – although it does feel that way at the time – but are in the journey, the daily grind, the lessons you learn, the people you meet, the memories you share with your teammates. The pre-game meals, the team dinners, the post-game tailgates. The huddles, the strategy, the comeback. Watching your teammate cause a turnover, assisting on that game winning goal. But I am most of all grateful for that time when I got to put on that red uniform, represent my programs and school, and just be an athlete. I am beyond honored to be included in this athletic hall of fame – but most of all, I am beyond grateful and proud to be a RED."
The following day, inductees were honored at halftime of the Sally E. Nyborg Field Hockey game, as part of the RPCS Fall Sports Festival. The REDS took the field in Sally’s honor and earned a 7-1 victory vs. Friends. Go REDS!
