Tom Horvat '14 has escalated his athletic career at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a star basketball player. A senior guard, Horvat was named All-Liberty League First Team after he led Rensselaer in scoring (16.2 points per game), field goals (143), three-point field goals (79), assists (75), steals (56) and minutes per game (31.1).
At PCD, Horvat was a two-time captain, where he was All-NEPSAC and First Team twice in basketball. He was also All-SENE three times and was a standout in soccer and baseball. Horvat was All-Division First Team three times and All-State as a senior in soccer and All-SENE twice in baseball. He also reached the one thousandth point milestone at PCD. Only twelve PCD students have ever hit the number and Tom was the first to have accomplished it as a junior.
"Tom was one of the best pure athletes to come out of Providence Country Day. He excelled as a multi-sport athlete and was also one of the fiercest competitors I've coached," says Marquis Harper, PCD athletic director. "He always seemed to have ice water in his veins, as he was the guy who could hit that clutch shot or free throw, or make the game winning base hit. Players like him don't come around very often."
