Owego Track and Field Star signs NLI with Mansfield University
High School Students across the Southern Tier have been choosing where to go to college and today, Owego Track and Field star Parrish Bridges signed his National Letter of Intent to Mansfield University. Bridges will run like the wind for the Mountaineers and so far this year he ran the indoor 1,600 meter run in 4:30 minutes as he prepares for the grind that is being a college athlete.
"Academically they have a really good criminal justice program so I really felt like it was home when I was there. The coach really knows his stuff and I felt like it was the best choice," said Bridges.
Parrish wanted to play basketball when he was growing up but says running has been the best thing that has happened to him.
