Northside Christian's Katelyn Greenleaf signs with Alabama

The four-month wait was finally over, and Katelyn Greenleaf took a seat at a table in the Northside Christian library Thursday afternoon. With an unwavering hand, Greenleaf took a pen and signed her letter of intent to run for the University of Alabama.

There was no suspense with Greenleaf officially cementing her college choice. She committed to the Crimson Tide two weeks ago and has not wavered from that decision.

Still, her signing was more than just a ceremony.

It was an event.

The library was filled with family and friends, including Northside Christian pastor Tim Kroll and former Northside football coach Bob Dare

A slide show of her races in cross country and track flashed across the screen. Her accomplishments, which include 15 medals at state meets, were listed by her coach, Jeff Goodwin. Close friends and family spoke about her.

Greenleaf, a four-time Times cross country runner of the year, started her recruiting process in the summer and narrowed her choices to Alabama and Florida in December.

This past month, Greenleaf also took trips to Clemson and South Carolina but decided on Alabama because of cooler weather and its proximity to home.
