Welcome to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.
We sat down this week with senior runner Shea Cody, who was part of the girls’ cross country team that brought home the B North division championship in 2015.
Name: Shea Cody
Committed to run: Cross Country
College: Pace University (Pleasantville, NY)
In five years, I’ll be: doing something to help people either through education or through exercise
Bagel Order: Bacon and egg on an everything
EB: Why Pace?
SC: I think that Pace felt like it was close enough to home for me, but also far enough. I just decided that it was the best fit, and once I met the team, that (feeling) really set in.
EB: What has RBR Cross Country taught you?
SC: This is the first sport I’ve ever done, so it taught me what it’s like to be on a team, and what it’s like when you’re around people who love something just as much as you do, and how that just makes the sport so much better.
EB: What’s your favorite RBR sports memory?
SC: There was one race my sophomore year when I was so sick (during it), but I still decided that it would be a good idea to run. I finished, and my time was so awful, but once I finished, my whole team was there. I was so nice because even though I wasn’t the one winning, everyone was there for each other, if you didn’t do well or if you did do well.
