The Fee sisters are triplets at Lee’s Summit North High School. They all ran cross country all four years of high school. They are all three going to attend college playing a sport. Halle is attending Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas to pursue rowing. Brianna and Olivia are attending The University of The South in Sewanee, Tennessee to play soccer.
The Fee sisters are very athletic. Their parents both played sports when they were younger. So they have a very good work ethic.
“The girls only know how to work hard. They are always asking how they can get better, and over their four years in the program, it has paid off,” Ryan Shortino, head cross country coach, said.
Playing a sport is a big achievement for everyone. People usually dream about playing a sport in college when they are younger and have to work hard to get to this goal.
“When I was about nine or ten, I knew that soccer was my favorite sport. I have always loved it so much and I knew from a young age that I wanted to play it for as long as I could. Playing in college was something that I had always dreamed of doing. I had a family friend who played soccer at North and eventually in college, which was what inspired me to play in college as well,” Olivia Fee, senior, said.
College is a new chapter in life and can be hard because it is a big change. It is an opportunity to meet new people and experience new things.
“I am looking forward most to becoming best friends with the girls on the team, and be able to work hard and become very fit for the sport,” Halle Fee, senior, said.
Growing up as a triplet can make you super close to your sisters. Being close means that you have someone to talk to or lean on when you need help.
“Yes, my sisters and I are all really close. Growing up, there haven’t been many instances where we were separated for multiple days at a time. Obviously, we are around each other constantly. Although we all have different interests and personalities, the three of us are very close to one another,” Brianna Fee, senior, said.
The Fee sisters have a bright future ahead of them. With strong work ethics, all three sisters look forward to advancing their athletic careers at the collegiate level.
