Northfield senior Brittany Sloan is headed to Indiana University- Kokomo to run cross country next fall. Sloan signed her letter of intent Tuesday at Northfield.
During the fall cross country season Sloan was part of the Northfield girls cross country team that qualified for the New Haven semi state. The Lady Norse were the highest 2A finisher in the state.
Sloan, an All State Honorable Mention selection placed 4th in the TRC race to make All Conference, plus finished 7th in the sectional and 29th in the regional.
While at IUK Brittany will study Dentistry.
Sloan stated ” I picked IUK because I wanted to go to an IU campus and be able to run. I really liked the IUK campus and I fit in well.” Next fall will be just IUK’s fourth year as a cross country program.
IUK coach Jason VanAlstine ”We are trying to start something special and Brittany adds a bunch of talent to our team. Her personality fits right in and she will be one of out top runners.”
