Northfield senior Austin Andrews signed his letter of intent to run cross country next year at Indiana University-Kokomo Tuesday.

While at Northfield Andrews has run cross country and track with his final track season yet to come. The Northfield boys cross country team had the highest 2A semi state finish in the state this season.

While at UIK Andrews will study Psychology.

”It’s a smaller program that I will fit in well,” Andrews said. “I hope to be in the top seven.”

”On paper Austin should be in our top five, but he will have to be patient as boys go from a 5K in high school to a five-mile race in college,” IUK coach Jason VanAlstine said.
