Bishop O’Connell President Kathleen Prebble and Marymount University President Matthew D. Shank finalized the agreement for joint use and maintenance of the Arlington high school’s new baseball field last month.

“It’s exciting for us to add another level to our partnership with Marymount,” said Prebble. “We have an academic partnership for dual enrollment, and now we are partners in athletics. It will be great for our families and neighbors to be able to come watch a collegiate game.

“The future of Catholic education depends on strong partnerships between our high schools and universities,” she said.

“We are delighted that Marymount and Bishop O’Connell have such close ties,” added Shank. “Bishop O’Connell is an excellent school that produces outstanding graduates — many of whom choose to continue their education at Marymount. By working together, we benefit the students at both of our institutions, as well as the wider community.”

This is Prebble’s last semester at the school. She announced Feb. 11 that she will not return as president next year.
