Carlinville fall captains to embark on new adventures


Enquirer-Democrat Sports Reporter

Last week, Molly Lewis and Jarret Easterday inked their letters of intent in the Carlinville High School media center and made the commitment to further their education as student athletes.

On Feb. 20, Lewis formally signed with the St. Ambrose University Bees’ cross country squad. She plans to study exercise science as an undergraduate then transfer to physical therapy in pursuit of a master’s degree.

Twenty-four hours later, Easterday became a member of the Illinois Wesleyan University football family. The Carlinville quarterback will be pursuing a degree in the biological pre-medical field.

Both athletes earned the title of senior captain during the 2018 fall season.
