(Park Hills) Not a lot of high school athletes make it to the college level, even fewer decide to play multiple sports. For Central graduate Liberty Coleman, she becomes one of the few. Coleman signed with the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis to play volleyball and participate in track and field. Balancing two sports and school seems like a tough task, but Coleman says she will be okay.
Coleman was originally recruited by the volleyball coach at UHSP but wanted to get into contact with the track Coach. It turned out to be a great match as the Eutectics needed a field athlete for the women’s team. She shared what events she will be participating in at the college level.
For her studies, Coleman says she will participate in the College of Pharmacy program at UHSP.
Coleman says she is excited to get started and is already getting into top condition for both upcoming seasons. At Central, she was 1st-Team All-Conference, 2-time 1st-Team All-District, All-Region, and All-State in Volleyball, and All-Conference and qualified for the state meet in Track.
