Gottbrath on why she chose WashU:
"Even though I originally wanted to go to a D1 college for running I just kept  reminding myself that I wasn't looking for a college where I could just run. I was looking for a college where I could get the best education possible and be involved in things outside of running while still doing what I love. And WashU was the school that I thought could give me the best of both worlds. They have great academics which was my number one priority but they also have a great running program with an awesome coach who is very understanding of club involvement and the hard work load students are given. I can't wait to be a bear!
