Ursula Billings competes in the 3200 meter run for Crest High School.

COLONY — Ursula Billings is more than just a “one-trick pony.” Not only does the Crest sophomore run cross country and track for the Lancers, she also competes for the Iola Seahorses in the pool. 

Yes, Billings is a superb athlete, finishing ninth at state in the 3200 meter run as a freshman, and, as such, is one of June’s Allen County Area Athletes of the Month. But sports aren’t her only interest. Billings is a scholar, swim coach, musician, animal lover, poultry judge, and a part-time novelist. 

Safe to say, she is more than just your prototypical high-school athlete.
