There are a lot of two-sport high school athletes. But there aren’t as many two-sport college athletes.
For Liz Schooler, participating in two sports in college worked out.
“I always did better academically when I was involved, and going from high school to college is a big jump,” the 2009 Seymour High School graduate said. “Being able to associate yourself with a team or a group just sets you apart. It really helps you get involved. I didn’t feel like I was done after high school. I knew that there was something else to do, so I wanted to go and try it.”
Schooler played softball and ran cross-country at SHS, and moving on to Spalding University in Louisville, Ky., she was set on only playing softball. But once she arrived on campus, the newly formed cross-country team was looking for girls to run.
