“The really cared about me as a person and not just as an athlete, that's what really drew me to school,” Frost said about her decision with Illinois College. “It’s also a smaller school which I’ve gone here for the past four years and I love how you get a family experience, everyone cares.”

Frost said the bonds she has made with her teammates as well as classmates while at Marquette Catholic High School is something she is very grateful for.
