Are DI college track teams close? Have any of you guys run in college or have kids that run in college and can answer this for me? Do they hang out outside of practice and meets? Do kids from different grades hang out? Do athletes from different events hang out (i.e. jumpers and sprinters, distance and throwers etc)?
For some background... currently I play volleyball and track. My volleyball team is very close, and I think that I will miss that closeness when I do track in college. I prefer volleyball but Ivy Leagues and other great schools have showed interest in me for track. I'm considering going to a lesser school for volleyball or possibly doing both in college.
