30 Days, 30 Grads: Schlarman alum walking, talking a healthy lifestyle

LEBANON — Sydne Bryant never had to worry about the "Freshman 15."

The 22-year-old Danville woman stayed in shape throughout her undergraduate career thanks to her training regimen as a member of the women's softball team — first at Lincoln College, then McKendree University — and her own healthy eating habits and personal fitness routine.
