St. Joseph Scollard Hall student Lindsay Fletcher has received a four-year athletic scholarship to run cross country and track from Jacksonville State University located in Jacksonville, Alabama.
Fletcher signed her National Letter of Intent with JSU in November 2021 and has been accepted into the Biology - Pre-Health Professions program.
“When I received my scholarship offer from the distance coach from JSU I was really happy and felt very satisfied that all my hard work paid off and that I achieved my goal," Fletcher told BayToday.
"I would like to thank all of my coaches who helped make this possible."
She has been a member of the SJSH Bears cross country and track and field teams throughout high school and has been a long-time member of the North Bay Legion track and field team.
This season, she captured a gold medal at NOSSA in the 1500 M event that took place in Sault Ste. Marie in late May.
Lindsay reports to JSU on August 15 and will compete in her first NCAA cross country race on September 2.
