In the fourth grade, Paul played on a travel team with Schuchat."She was horrible in fourth grade," said Paul with a laugh. "Then I hadn't seen her for four years and we get to tryouts in ninth grade and she's amazing."Schuchat, a versatile All-Metro senior for the No. 2 Eagles, was initially drawn to the challenge more than the sport.
