Rebecca Weddell

December 21, 2018

By Kendra Paasch

 

Not everyone has the talent or ability to compete at the college level. But Rebecca Weddell, senior at West Point-Beemer, has this ability.

Weddell has participated in volleyball and track in high school. She is a varsity letter winner in both sports.

Weddell is one of the four athletes on the 1600 meter relay team that holds the school record with a time of 4:09. She also competes in the open 400 meters and long jump.

 Her options currently for college are Concordia, Doane, and Wayne.

She likes Concordia’s track program slightly more than the others. She likes their head track coach and the way the program makes everyone feel like they are part of a big family.

In order to be a collegiate track athlete, Weddell will have to give up time for athletics. This means that she will have to focus extra hard on her academics when she isn’t busy training.

Her goals are to stay active. “I like competing, and I like to run a bit,” stated Weddell. She wants to run the races that she likes but is willing to try new ones that push her more.

She also wants to get a scholarship and a second family from competing in college.

Weddell’s advice: Only do college sports for yourself because it is a lot different from high school.
