WMBD/WYZZ-TV - PEKIN, Ill. - Lexie Yeley has had so much fun going to Charleston for the IHSA state track and field meet that she wants to go back.

For college.

The Pekin signed her National Letter of Intent with Eastern Illinois University Thursday. The discus and shot put standout will also play rugby at EIU.

"I've been to the campus a couple years because of (the state meet)," said Yeley. "I like the size, it's not too big or too small. They have the academic program I want to go into. And I reall ylike their track program."
