Northfield senior Abby Keaffaber has signed with Huntington University to be both an athlete and an academic.
On Tuesday, Nov. 24, Keaffaber signed to play with the college’s softball team, but told The Paper of Wabash County that she based her decision on much more than sports.
 “I liked that it was so close to my home and that I could visit my parents and family often,” Keaffaber told The Paper of Wabash County. “I love their small Christian campus and I went to a couple softball practices and I loved how they ran it. They also have a really great nursing program.”
