Figure skater Sarah Hughes, who upset Michelle Kwan to win an Olympic gold medal last February, now has her eyes on a different prize: the Ivy League.

Hughes, 17, said she did "very well" on her SATs and is considering Harvard, where she has already been accepted, as well as Columbia, Princeton and Yale, where she has applied.

"I don't have to decide until May," Hughes told TV Guide for its Jan. 11 issue.

Hughes, of Great Neck, N.Y., hopes to win her first national title when she competes in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Dallas next week.
