Here’s a story we don’t hear often enough in this age of increasing specialization. Rolla High School senior, Kaitlin Bramel, just signed with Fontbonne University in St. Louis to play soccer AND basketball beginning in the Fall of 2008.
Kaitlin has been a force in both sports all four years and unlike her close friend Katie Pritchard, she wanted to continue playing both sports in college. I’m excited to hear she found an opportunity. I’m crossing my fingers there will be a game the weekend I visit St Louis to catch Emory take on Washington University when former high school teammates Patrick Carver and Josh Florez face off one last time. Fontbonne is just down the street.
