Athlete of the week: September 27- October 3, 2021
Congratulations to cross country runner Gabriella S. '23 for being selected as our Athlete of the Week for the week of September 27- October 3, 2021.
The junior runner is making a name for herself in the Florida running world. At the FLRunners.com Invitational on October 1, Gabby turned in her second fastest time of her high-school career on one of Florida's best and most challenging cross country courses. She finished third overall in a field of 182 runners from 30 teams representing all classifications.
"Gabby has turned into an elite runner has improved her racing skills this season," said head cross country coach Charlotte Edwards. "She is willing to explore different strategies and is continually working to be in that front pack to challenge the best runners in Southwest Florida."
Gabby and the Cougar cross country squad will have one final tune up before the Private 8 Championships and District Championships as they compete in the Viking XC Invitational at Bishop Verot High School on Saturday morning.
