Northfield senior Caleb Augustus signed his national letter of intent Wednesday to run cross country and track for Division 1 Northern Kentucky University next year. Oddly enough the nickname for Northern Kentucky is the Norse.
Augustus, a 1A/2A first team all state selection and state qualifier in cross country this year chose Northern Kentucky because ” the atmosphere with the team. The guys really accepted me on my visit there which I thought wouldn’t happen right away. Coach is a lot like coach Leming, but doesn’t talk as much. He has a lot of the same coaching philosophies. I think I can do well there. I feel like I can fit in to the top seven if I work hard enough.”
Caleb has not decided on a major yet.
