Graver Continues Track Career
Wellsboro senior Lindsey Graver announced her decision to continue her track & field career next year at Division III Misericordia University while pursuing their Doctorate of Physical Therapy program on Thursday, April 14.
“Lindsey is definitely a team leader and this year she has dedicated herself to our team,” said Wellsboro head coach Elizabeth Hoover. “Even though we haven’t had a lot of time on the track this year, but Lindsey is doing the best she can and has already qualified for Districts.”
Graver currently has a 3rd place finish in the 100m (13.9), a 1st place in the 200m (29.8), and a 2nd place finish in the triple jump (29-ft, 7.5 in) in her only meet this year against Canton and Northern Tioga, but was part of last year’s 4x100m relay team that set a new school record (49.3) and qualified for the PIAA State Track & Field Championships.
“Last summer I attended a track camp at met a coach who is now at Misericordia and I really liked her,” Graver said. “So her moving to Misericordia gave me interest. It wasn’t hard to decide where to go because the first time I visited I really liked the campus.”
