Wisdom from Alumni

The athletic department is working to set up some profiles of alumni student-athletes, a “where are they now” kind of effort. Our own Lucinda Boyce (3-seat in the 2006 conference champion WV4 above) made the cut and had the following words of wisdom for current student-athletes:

“Play a sport. Even if you’re terrible. Get on a team, there is nothing like it in life and you’re missing out if you’re not a part of something like it. And, pick a major you think you know nothing about, take a few classes, get to know the teachers, and see what hooks.”

I also especially liked this quote from former track athlete Kirk Reynolds:

“Devote more time to your athletics. At a place like L&C, you will always have academics as your top priority, as it should be. The challenge is to make athletics be co-curricular with your studies rather than extra-curricular. It is possible to do both equally well. Most Division-III athletes use academics as a cop-out excuse to avoid achieving all they can in their athletic realm. Have courage, and do both well.”
