2016 Distinguished Alumnae

Kate Putnam Baxter '61

Kate Putnam Baxter ’61

After graduating from Holton in 1961 and Smith College four years later, Kate Putnam Baxter ’61 raised a family, attended law school, and practiced law in New York and Connecticut before moving to California in 1997 where she now lives near her daughter and grandsons. Privileged to travel to developing countries with fellow alumnae from what used to be called the Seven Sister Colleges, she was struck in 2012 with the plight of Cambodians still suffering from the devastating experiences of the Khmer Rouge in 1975 to 1979. Since volunteerism has always played an important role in her life, she decided to dedicate part of each year to sharing with Cambodians the gifts that each of us has - an excellent education and the English language. “To be a native speaker in the lingua franca of the world is a blessing. To share it with others is finding a way to make a small difference in the lives of many.”

The 2017 Holton-Arms Athletic Hall of Fame Class

Claire Bordley Berg '04

During her time at Holton, Claire Bordley Berg ’04 was a talented and passionate athlete who dominated at basketball, lacrosse, and soccer. A 12 season varsity athlete and a leader amongst her peers, Claire served as team captain for five different seasons, as well as President of HAA her senior year. She is one of the few student-athletes to be awarded the prestigious Suzanne Bailey Athletic Award twice - in 2003 and 2004. A recipient of several athletic honors, Claire was named MVP in lacrosse during both her junior and senior years at Holton; All-ISL in basketball, lacrosse, and soccer; All-Gazette in lacrosse from 2002, 2003, and 2004; Washington Post First Team All-Met in 2003; First Team US Lacrosse All-American in 2002, 2003, and 2004. To top off these incredible awards, she also won a world title as a member of the US Lacrosse Women's U19 team which won the IFWLA World Cup in 2003.

Not surprisingly, Claire was recruited to play field hockey and lacrosse at the Division I level at the University of Virginia. Claire’s lacrosse career at UVA was nothing short of stellar. Not only did her team win three ACC Championships, they were also NCAA Finalists during two of her four seasons. In 2008, Claire served as team captain and also received significant recognition including being named All-ACC, IWLCA North-South Senior All-Star, VaSID All-State, VaSID Player of the Year, and the LaxPower Defender of the Year Fan Award recipient.

Claire currently lives in Chevy Chase with her husband, Alex. She works as an upper school history teacher and financial aid coordinator at The Potomac School where she also serves as the assistant coach for varsity soccer and the head coach for varsity lacrosse, a position she has held since 2012. In February 2017, Claire was inducted into the US Lacrosse Potomac Chapter Hall of Fame.


Sally Voss Krueger '75

Sally Voss Krueger ’75 was an incredibly well-rounded and exceptional student-athlete at Holton. A leader on the field, Sally played 15 seasons of varsity sports, including basketball, field hockey, softball, and track. Sally’s leadership amongst her teammates earned her the titles of captain and MVP for basketball, field hockey, softball, as well as President of HAA.

After an extremely accomplished athletic high school career, Sally attended Stanford University where she was a two-time All-American on the women's golf team. Following her graduation, Sally completed medical school and her residency at Harvard University in Pediatric Anesthesiology.

Since graduating, Sally qualified for and competed in 27 United States Golf Association (USGA) events as an amateur, including three U.S. Women's Open Championships. She has won multiple state and regional championships (Maryland, California, Mid-Atlantic, and Washington, DC), as well as a record 10 San Francisco City Championships. In 1996, Sally was also the first woman to ever play in, and to date the only woman to ever make the cut in, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Championship.

Sally currently lives in San Francisco with her husband, Jim, where she works as a pediatric anesthesiologist as a Senior Partner with Northern California Anesthesia Physicians.

Lane Fogarty Strand '01

Despite enduring her fair share of physical injuries during her high school and college athletic careers, Lane Fogarty Strand ’01 continued to shine and became a true inspiration to many teammates and future athletes. At Holton, Lane was a 12 season varsity athlete in ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer.

A stand-out player in all three sports at Holton, Lane earned herself awards such as All-ISL in soccer and MVP in soccer and ice hockey. In her sophomore lacrosse season, she tore her ACL which posed as a career-defining event for Lane. However, she did not let this injury hold her back – she worked tirelessly to become better and stronger. Lane started the first soccer game of the season her junior year, just months after her spring time injury.

During her final two years at Holton, Lane went on to add numerous regional, national, and MVP awards to her resume. One that is particularly notable is her two-time First Team All-Met recognition for ice hockey. This is significant in any sport. However, since The Washington Post does not distinguish between men's and women's ice hockey, Lane’s recognition is especially impressive as she was the only women’s ice hockey player to receive this recognition both years.

She captained all three sports her senior year and also served as the President of HAA. As a senior, Lane was the recipient of the Suzanne Bailey Award and was also honored with The Trilling Award at The Washington Post All-Met Award Luncheon. This award, presented by Hermann Boone, was given to All-Met honorees who exceled in both academics and community service.

Lane went on to play Division I lacrosse at Duke University where she started her freshman and sophomore seasons. She suffered a second torn ACL and was red shirted her junior year. Resilient and hardworking, Lane not only returned to the field her senior year, she was able to start. That year, she helped her team win the program’s first ever ACC Championship and went on to play in the NCAA Final Four!

After graduating from Duke, Lane came back to Holton where she coached the JV lacrosse team for two years. Lane currently lives in Chevy Chase with her husband, Peter, and her children, Charlie and Sally.


Megan Kelly Walter '98

A talented athlete from a young age, Megan Kelly Walter ’98 first started playing field hockey and lacrosse during her seventh grade year at Holton. As her skills progressed so did her accolades. Her senior year, Megan received both Washington Post First Team All-Met honors in field hockey and Second Team All-Met honors in lacrosse. To top off her final year at Holton, she received the Suzanne Bailey Award in 1998.

Megan went on to play both field hockey and lacrosse at the Division I level during her four years at the University of Maryland. Throughout her college athletic career, Megan accrued seven ACC (four field hockey and three lacrosse) and four NCAA (three lacrosse and one field hockey) championship rings. Her senior year, she received the James H. Kehoe Athletic Award which is awarded to a University of Maryland student-athlete who exemplifies the ideals of sportsmanship.

Megan’s passion for athletics did not end after her time as a student-athlete. In 2002, Megan was hired as an Assistant Coach for the Georgetown University field hockey team for the 2002-2003 season. She recently received her Crossfit Level 1 Trainer Certification and continues to remain active by playing golf, tennis, and skiing in her free time.

Megan currently lives in Gaithersburg with her husband, Christian, and their children, Florian and Louisa. She works at her family’s Ford Dealership, Hagerstown Ford, while also serving as the Sales Administrator for a startup car buying application called Happy Tag Autos.
