Each year, hundreds of athletes compete in sports. A fortunate few get to go on and continue to the next level. The class of 2019 is no different.
Although Tatyana Carlson had several options, she will be attending Lewis-Clark State in Idaho for golf.
“There were a few colleges on the east that talked to me and offered a good scholarship but they were too far away for me. I wanted to go to Lewis-Clark State because I felt like I kind of clicked with the team,” said Carlson. “I did my college visit and met with everyone. They were all super welcoming. This college gave me a good offer to pay for most of my schooling so I basically have to pay for my meal plan and one or two classes and they pay for the rest.”
Will Kracaw is going to be going to the College of Idaho for cross country. He explained why he chose this school.”It was closer to home than a lot of other schools that offer scholarships and then they also gave me a good scholarship along with academic scholarships that I had earned at the school the scholarship was $5000 a year” said Kracaw.
Becca Kuskie will be attending Northwest Christian University in Oregon for cross country. In addition to her family, others have played a key role in her success.
“Kitty Norcutt has inspired me to become as good a runner as I have been and she is kind of like a second mom to me,” said Kuskie. “She was always there for me whenever I need something. If I have something super important to do she is very understanding and will let me do it.”
Caleb Sanchez will be attending Presentation College in South Dakota for football.
“They made me a good offer and going to college for football has always been a dream of mine so it was an easy choice,” said Sanchez.
Brooke Hansen will be attending Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri. She already signed with their volleyball team in February.
Hansen knows that this school will help her become the person she wants to be.
“The classroom sizes are smaller, and it’s just a good environment for me to be around,” said Hansen. “ I really liked how the college is smaller and all the people were really nice.”
