Day In The Life With Kelsey Hill

Midwestern State's Kelsey Hill gave the home fans much to cheer about during her Mustang career on the women's soccer team.

The Wichita Falls native is the all-time school leader in goals with 46 and points with 111. She's also third with 19 assists.

What's lost in her success on the field is the work the senior goes through each and every day during the season. She goes to class from 8 a.m. to noon and then practices from 3 p.m. to 5 or 5:30 p.m.

"Staying on top of your school work is always challenging because your days are so busy," Hill said.

One week in particular stood out this season. She had a project due in every class and a big game during the week. Like many college students, any free time becomes work time.

While a typical week isn't quite as busy, Hill has to take advantage of any free time she has, studying in between class and practice or late at night after eating dinner. She hopes the time-management skills she's learned will benefit her in the future, no matter the career path.

If she has the choice, that career will be coaching.

She's majoring in kinesiology, and many of her classes are helping prepare her for that future. Some of her classes are teaching her how to deal with athletes both on and off the field.

"Seeing both sides of it, being a player and also taking these classes and kind of getting a different perspective, I think it's really beneficial," Hill said.

Coaching involves a lot of pressure, but it's something Hill's accustomed to as a Wichita Falls native. She went from playing in front of Rider High School's home fans to Midwestern State's.

Hill will graduate in the fall of next season, and the Wichita Falls fans will have to wait and see where the local star ends up next.
