GREEN TWP. - Sydney Kilgore didn't have to run.
After being forced to vacate her senior soccer season at Oak Hills High School when she tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus in her right knee last summer, Kilgore could have called it a career and focused solely on what looks to be a promising collegiate soccer career.
But that's not how she's built.
After learning her senior season was lost and the road back uncertain, Kilgore, who's signed to play soccer at Indiana University this fall, immediately decided she would not give up on running.
"Never a doubt," said Kilgore, who actually starts summer classes as well as lifting and conditioning at Indiana June 20. "My main goal was to come back for track. I knew I wouldn't be able to play soccer and that was really upsetting. I had a ton of goals I knew I wouldn't be able to accomplish in soccer, but I wanted to come back and run. I was lifting every day just to get back in time for it."
