Maggie Bill pursues two sports at UNC

Maggie Bill is followed by a choice she refuses to make — and one she simply doesn’t know the answer to. For her, there’s nothing unusual about her life as a dual-sport athlete at North Carolina and therefore no reason to dwell on herself and her accomplishments. And she sees no reason to make a decision anytime soon. Because when it comes to lacrosse and soccer, Bill can’t choose one over the other. She simply devotes herself to whichever sport is in season. It’s what she has always done. (Daily Tar Heel)
