Marley Young, Athletics Co-Editor

Swimming in underground caves in West Virginia is scary enough, but when mixed with cold water and fish with no eyes, it becomes downright frightful. This, among other things, makes Marley Young, senior, different than your average high school student.

“We had to swim out of the underground caves in freezing 50 degree cold water.” said Young, her traveling experience makes her a pro at adapting to new situations like frigid cold cave swimming. Young’s best vacation consisted of a trip to Alaska, where she whale watched and kayaked.  But that’s not the only place Young wishes to visit.

“I want to live in Italy because of the good food, great culture and people.” Having lived in Ohio, West Virginia and Oregon, Young has traveling experience, and her passion for orangutan rehabilitation may take her all over the world. While in these exotic places she might incorporate her special talents of, clarinet, drums, violin and piano. When Young has free time she can relax with her hobbies of hiking, rock climbing, golf and eating Thai food.

All of these travels, talents and hobbies add on to the list that makes Marley Young a extreme adventure junkie, pro traveler and not your average high school student.
