Grace Slater

Brian Rathjen/NT Sports Editor

Atlantic junior Taylor McCreedy fought through injury and illness to continue her outstanding career in cross-country this past season.

This week's athlete of the week is Audubon's Grace Slater. The sophomore sensation just wrapped up an impressive sophomore year where Slater returned to the State meet and placed 19th overall at state, which is a big step for her 74th place finish last year. Grace has lead by example all year for the other Audubon runners and this state performance is just another example of how hard work pays off. Great season, Grace!
