Cassady Robinson signing

Growing up, Cassady Robinson played in a T-ball baseball league with boys. She also threw the football around with the guys, many of whom she considers some of her closest friends. So, when it came time to make her choice of a college, the North Central High School senior chose … You guessed it, Columbia College.As she sat behind a table inside NC’s Leonard Price Theater last Monday to sign an academic/athletic scholarship with the all-girls college, Robinson laughed while telling those gathered for the occasion she never would have imagined she would be Columbia College-bound.“I just never saw myself going to an all-girls school because most of my friends in high school have been guys; just because I get along with them better than girls,” she said with a smile while explaining her earlier comment.
