Cammie Colin is a typical high school student in many ways - cheerleader, softball player, enjoys algebra, loves to dance, likes singers Freddie Gomez and Lil Wayne.
Oh, and the White Knoll High 10th grader hunts alligators, too.
With a crossbow.
In the middle of the night.
Over the weekend, she became perhaps the youngest female ever to bag an alligator in South Carolina.
"Don't be afraid, and just go at it," she gave as her advice for young people who might want to hunt alligators or do some other unusual thing.
Colin, 16, said she's still excited about the hunt, which took place about 3 a.m. Sunday in the dark headwaters of Lake Marion just south of Sparkleberry Swamp.
She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. The alligator she shot was 10 feet 5 inches long and weighed 353 pounds.
