College Bound: Katelyn EnglertJanuary 4, 2019
A Q&A with Forest Park senior Katelyn Englert who will be running track collegiately at Anderson University.
What was the biggest factor into your decision to play sports collegiately? I just wanted to have an atmosphere that I can go into and meet new people and stay in shape while in college. I love running so I just wanted to continue that experience.
What stood out about Anderson University over the other schools that you visited? They had everything that I was looking for, they were close enough to home where travel isn’t too big of a deal and they have a great nursing program. I also can go into youth ministry there.
During your time at Forest Park, who or what do you feel most prepared you for playing sports in college? My coaches and my friends, I joined track because one of my basketball teammates told me she was going to run track and then I joined cross country because of my track teammates and track coach.
What was your biggest accomplishment during your time at Forest Park? Winning cross country sectional two years in a row, my first year I didn’t get to run on varsity so my second year of cross country I was just determined to work hard and it paid off. Now, I look forward to see how it pays off during track season.
If you could describe your high school athletic experience in one word, what would it be? Amazing.
