La Grande's Lindsey Carmichael will play basketball and soccer for the Oregon Institute of Technology.

She will not play soccer this fall but will wait till the following year.

"I was thinking both, but I'm not sure my knee will be ready by then," Carmichael said.

Carmichael suffered a knee injury during basketball season.

"It's not where I expected to be going (for college), but I'm excited," Carmichael said.

Carmichael said she will major in physical therapy or sports medicine. She said she is leaning to health sciences.

"I am excited, yeah, to try something new," she said.
