Julia Krass didn't listen to her ski coaches when they told her to give up soccer and concentrate on her Olympic career full-time. Now, the 17-year-old high school senior is celebrating a state title.
Krass competed in freestyle skiing at the Sochi Games earlier this year. She loved soccer too much to quit, enjoying being part of a team in a way she misses when on a solo freestyle skiing run.
She says it's all part of being an average teenager from time to time.
Krass helped Hanover High School win the New Hampshire Division II soccer championship on Sunday.
Krass says it's hard to continue to play soccer but she loves both sports and juggles the demands.
