While most athletes attempt to hit the ground running, Creston senior Taylor Seaton hopes to hit the ground throwing as she has been doing all spring for Creston’s track and field team.
Seaton signed to throw at Southwestern Community College on Wednesday in the commons of Creston Community High School.
“I chose Southwestern because it’s close to home, obviously,” Seaton said. “Watching them practice was kind of cool like ‘Oh that’s something I would be interested in.’”
“I never really acted on it, and then they offered so that was a dream come true,” Seaton added.
Seaton also likes SWCC because of their nursing programs.
“They have a great nursing program,” Seaton said.
Specifically, Seaton wants to work with women birthing babies.
“I want to be a midwife,” Seaton said. “I want to get my midwife license and I also want to get a nurse practitioner degree in women’s health.”
Geographically, Seaton doesn’t have a set place as to where she wants to work.
“I think I want to travel and get experiences and learn from other people,” Seaton said. “I do think I’ll come back to the Midwest at some point.”
Seaton will take part in the state qualifying meet with her Creston teammates in Denison tonight.
