Tomahawk - Karlie Woodall and Autumn Peissig both signed their letters of intent on March 25. Woodall is headed to the University of Green Bay, where she will compete in diving.

Woodall had a long journey to this point. She's battled several major knee injuries and had to travel over an hour and a half just to find a diving board. For her, she's just grateful for the opportunity. 

"Just to see how far I've come, with so little that I've been given, is just a huge accomplishment for me to begin with," said Woodall. "With me continuing down this path, it allows me to hopefully she how much farther I can go with this."

For Peissig, running track at Whitewater was an easy choice. The Warhawks have one of the best Division 3 programs in the country and she knew that she would get the backing of the entire school.

"The team chemistry they have there and just the whole support from the school," explained Peissing. "If you go to any of their athletic events you can tell that, as a school, they're super supportive of all their student-athletes, and students in general."

Both Autumn and Karlie will have one more year of track this spring and then they'll head off to their respective schools in the fall.
