After receiving their high school diplomas, many athletes decide not to play organized sports in college.
For a while, Naperville North junior Michaela Robert looked like she was satisfied being included in that mix.
“I had been debating whether I wanted to do college gymnastics or not for a long time,” she said. “I guess I couldn’t see myself stopping because I just don’t know what my life would be like. My body is holding up pretty good and I love gymnastics so much, so there’s no reason to not go for it.”
