What's next for Cove seniors Kelcie Robinson, Kathy Mann and Lisa Scheele?


Robinson, Mann and Scheele were members of the runner-up Class 1A state volleyball team during the fall and 1A state basketball championship team during the winter.

This senior trio has garnered numerous all-state and all-league accolades in volleyball and basketball.

All three are preparing for district and state meets later this month but dreams of the future remain on their minds.

Robinson will study architecture at the University of Idaho (Moscow).

"I'm pretty good at math skills," she said. "I love arts like design and stuff."

She will not play any sports, but it won't stop her from intramurals.

"I'm really competitive," she said. "I don't think I'll go do something competitive."

The architecture program is designed for five years.

Robinson likes drawing.

Right now, she is focusing on the discus, 800-meter run and 4 x 100 relay.

"We all see track as an individual sport and push ourselves," she said. "Push as in not a team win as a girls team, so we're more focused individually and push ourselves."

Mann will attend Eastern Oregon University for one year and then transfer to a New York school with a fashion studies program.

She said she has been interested in fashion and matching for a long time. Mann designed her senior prom dress.

Mann said she will play for the Mountaineer softball team.

"Short stop, pitcher, catcher, I don't care," she said. "I want to play. I love softball."

She'll be a general education major at Eastern.

Mann started throwing the javelin this year. She does the 100 hurdles and either the 4 x 100 or 4 x 400 relay. She also would like more opportunities to pole vault.

"It's ridiculous," she said of not being able to pole vault a whole lot.

"We have a pit in Cove," she said. "The runway sucks."

She has only vaulted at two meets but she had the wrong pole at one of them.

"I'm excited to experience college and live on my own and getting away from here," Mann said.

She said she's not rich enough to go to New York, so she'll wait a year and then transfer.

Scheele will play basketball at Claremont McKenna College (Calif.).

She said the college is about 40 minutes southeast of Los Angeles.

"I'm very excited," she said about playing basketball.

She said she's done the high school thing and is ready for something new.

"I'll come back and see my sister play," she said.

She loves basketball.

"Volleyball was a good time, great coach, successful — maybe I'll pick it up in intramurals," she said. She's not that interested in pursuing track.

She is triple jumping and long jumping this spring. She's on the relay and sprints.

"I love jumping," she said. "It's definitely my favorite. I like meets."

Scheele encourages younger athletes to start planning early for the future.

"Start early on life in general," she said.

She explained by the time senior year hits, decisions need to be made and one should not wait and close doors on opportunities.
