Falmouth senior Lydia Farmer, joined by her parents, Tom and Darla, sister Abbie, teammates, and coaches Jorma Kurry and Jackson Nadeau, signs her National Letter of Intent Thursday afternoon to attend and jump at the University of Hartford.
“I’ve been looking forward to it,” said Farmer, who plans to study psychology and ultimately become an occupational therapist. “I’ve wanted to run track in college forever. I applied to eight schools and Hartford came out on top.”
Farmer, who placed second in both the long jump and triple jump at the Class A indoor state meet and third in the long jump a year ago outdoors, said that her time with the Yachtsmen helped elevate her skills to the next level.
“I’ve had really good coaches here,” said Farmer, who has also sprinted in high school. “Coach Nadeau and Jorma helped develop my form and technique. Little things that made me get to the next level.”
