Smithfield’s Piekarski joins JWU’s inaugural Chi Alpha Sigma class

PROVIDENCE – Tyler Piekarski, a 2018 graduate of Smithfield High who concluded his sophomore season as a defenseman on this past winter’s Johnson and Wales University men’s hockey team, was one of 84 student-athletes that the university welcomed into its first class of the Chi Alpha Sigma honor society.

The organization “recognizes college student-athletes who receive a varsity letter in their sport, while maintaining a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA throughout their junior and/or senior years and display excellent character and citizenship.”

Piekarski, who had been a four-year member of the Sentinels’ hockey team and a captain during his senior year in high school, currently has a GPA of 3.53. He played in 24 of the Wildcats’ 25 games last season.
