As juniors and seniors at Lindbergh get closer to choosing a college to further their education, some students are choosing their school based on different criteria. These students are the athletes that are talented enough to play sports at the next level.

In most cases, offers from colleges are received during the student athlete’s junior year. That is when these athletes must lay out their choices and decide what school will most benefit them for the four years they will attend. I asked senior Quinn Breeding how she decided between her choices.

“Once I got my first offer I knew there would be more on the way so I set aside the first offer so I still kept an open mind. Once senior year came around I toured each college I had an offer to and picked my top two choices. I finally chose McKendry University because the campus was beautiful and I loved their track program when I toured. It fit me most and I’m excited to go there for the next four years,”Quinn Breeding (12) said.

Though it might seem stressful, many athletes are simply excited to continue playing what they love and are happy to have college paid for, even though it is a huge decision.
