Galion’s Abby Barre headed to Shawnee State to golf


GALION — On March 23, senior Abby Barre signed her letter of intent to attend Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio, and to join the school’s golf team.

While attending school, Barre will not only be golfing, but studying to be a dental hygienist.

“I can’t pick just one reason why i wouldn’t go there,” she said. “Most importantly, there aren’t many schools that offer dental hygiene with housing and it’s three hours away, so housing is important.

“It’s a plus going to golf there, I love golf and it’s something that I’ve always done.”

The Bears compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Shawnee State, home of the Bears, is a relatively new school. Founded in 1986, it is one of Ohio’s youngest universities.
