Evanston alumna Margaret Bamgbose could have spent her summer at track meets in Calabar, Nigeria, and possibly Glasgow, Scotland.

However, the Notre Dame star turned down the opportunity to travel to her parents’ native Nigeria to compete for a spot on that nation’s squad for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Games, a multi-sport, Olympic-like competition held every four years, bring together the former nations of the British Empire. Scotland is hosting this summer’s edition, which takes place July 23-Aug. 3.

Bamgbose, meanwhile, has chosen a more low-key summer. The junior-to-be, a member of the 2014 ACC All-Academic Team who is studying information technology management, has been in South Bend, Indiana, taking classes and doing light training.
