OU Student Dies on Spring Break

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 20-year-old Ohio University women's soccer player has died on a spring break trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Authorities say Sarah Merritt fell from a fifth-floor balcony at her hotel Wednesday.

Witnesses told authorities that Merritt was climbing from the balcony of one room to another at the Comfort Inn and Suites when she fell about 60 feet.

An autopsy is scheduled today.

Merritt, a senior at O-U from Tipp City (Ohio), had two assists while playing all 19 games for the Bobcats last season.
