Nabours looks forward to opportunities with Bethel
Combine an emphasis on involvement with a chance to swim collegiately, and Bethel University seems an ideal spot for Camden County High student-athlete Bradlie Nabours.
The swimmer signed last Thursday with the school, located in McKenzie, Tenn. After representing Camden’s Wildcats in the pool, he looks forward to competing for Bethel’s Wildcats.
“I’m going to college with a group of friends already there,” said Nabours, who started swimming in ninth grade. “I’ll easily make friends with the entire team.”
Though the Camden County native said college means “moving really far, and being away from family and everyone I know,” it presents an opportunity to better himself.
Bethel is looking at Nabours in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle races, and its focus on community service is right up his alley. In terms of academics and extracurricular activities, CCHS has well-prepared him for college life, he said.
Nabours has already acclimated himself to college classwork, as most of his senior-year slate has been college classes. He wants to study biology, and has an eye on medical school. He has also served with the Key Club and Hero Club, and has been on two mission trips.
