Sofia Estes: Cross Country & Track–Fort Lewis College

February 6, 2020

The Red Ledger: What sport do you play, and how long have you been playing?

Sofia Estes: I run in cross country, and I’ve been running since 7th grade, and I only practice with Lovejoy.

TRL: What goals do you have for college sports?

SE: Honestly, I just want to improve, and that’s been my goal since the beginning, and then after I sign, the goal is to do the same. 

TRL: Would you ever consider going professional?

SE: No, honestly I didn’t even expect to run in college, but the school had a nice program and the team seemed really nice, and I still enjoy running. So it just fit. 

TRL: How has playing sports impacted your life?

SE: I think it’s been really nice, and it’s kept me productive every day, and it’s a really good stress reliever. I would probably be a lot more stressed out if I didn’t run.

TRL: What is your best memory regarding this sport?

SE: We have a camp that we go to over the summer, we go to Taos in New Mexico, and just going there is really fun. 

TRL: Why did you choose this school?

SE: The team’s really nice, and the coach cares a lot about academics, and even as a collegiate athlete, I want to put academics first, and athletics second.
