Symantha has been coached by Indiana Hall of Fame coach Donna Cheatham and I know what great coaching she has been getting as far as fundamentals, discipline, competitiveness, toughness and overall winning attitude.”

Norton was a three-sport athlete at Scottsburg, also competing in track and volleyball. She competed in the shot put, winning the Mid-Southern Conference title and qualifying for the IHSAA regionals as a junior.
