Heart of an Athlete: Katelin Peterson

Katelin Peterson wanted so badly to play field hockey for a Christian coach that she left her home in sunny Escondido, Calif., and moved across the country to Richmond, Va., where the winters are hardly California-like. But for Peterson it was a choice that she knows was best. Now a senior forward at the University of Richmond, she can look back on her college career as being one of both athletic achievement and spiritual growth thanks largely to the influence of her coach, her teammates and FCA.
