Cadillac’s Pyles Signs with Grand Valley State
CADILLAC – Cadillac senior Liz Pyles signed her National Letter of Intent on Monday to continue her track and field career at Grand Valley State.
A thrower, Pyles plans to compete in the shot put and discus and learn the hammer throw.
“I chose GVSU because when I went on my official visit, I knew that this was my school and I felt so comfortable there,” Pyles said. “It had such a great environment. I got along with the other throwers really well. I know they all work very hard and love throwing as much as I do. The throwing coach knows so much and can teach me so much more.
“All together the throwing program has done so well and knowing I’m going in such a strong program makes me confident that I will grow and improve as an athlete and as a person.”
A multi-sport athlete, Pyles is excited to become a college athlete.
“I’m really happy and excited,” she said. “I know it will be a big change for me but it will be a good one. I have worked so hard in something I love and now I will be able to continue in college will be amazing.”
Pyles plans to study criminal justice.
