College Bound: Karli MeyerJune 26, 2018
A Q&A with Southridge alum Karli Meyer who will be throwing both shot put and discus collegiately at Brescia University.
What was the biggest factor into your decision to play sports collegiately? The biggest factor into my decision was if I actually wanted to do a sport throughout my college career. I was never sure if I wanted to do a collegiate sport but I put a lot of thought into it and decided it would be best for me to do it.
What stood out about Brescia University over the other schools that you visited? Brescia is a super small college and that is what actually made it stand out to me. I'm not the kind of person who wanted to be just a number in a huge class, I like the small family-like atmosphere it gave me.
During your time at Southridge, who or what do you feel most prepared you for playing sports in college? During my high school career, many things have helped me and made me grow stronger as a person. The person who has made me feel prepared to throw shot and discus in collegiate track is Kevin Wertman. Coach Wertman is my throwing coach and he has pushed me to compete and do my best at every meet and at practices.
What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Southridge? My biggest accomplishment of my high school career was going to state in shot put during both my junior and senior years.
If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Whirlwind.
