Paige Scheriger was a member of the University of Florida’s swim team and cross country team. She swam her freshman and sophomore year. She could not swim her junior year because of a bone growth in her shoulder, so she decided to try out for the cross country team. Her shoulder did not improve during her year out of the pool, so she had to have surgery. She was able to return to the swim team for her senior year.
She enjoys both sports and plans to compete in more triathlons. In November of 2018 she competed in her second triathlon, the Marin County triathlon in California, and she finished second overall.
