Jim Thorpe’s Carroll to play volleyball at Wilkes
Kelsey Carroll, Senior
“I do not think it’s a good idea. The falls and trails at the glen are something that not only locals enjoy, but also the tourists. Taking that away from people would take away part of the experience of Jim Thorpe.”
Jim Thorpe’s Kelsey Carroll will continue her academic career and play volleyball at Wilkes University.
A four-year member of the Olympians’ varsity squad as a setter and outside hitter, Carroll tallied a school record 1,309 assists to go along with 830 digs, 375 kills and 282 aces curing her career,
