Scott wins Athlete of the Week

High School Sports

URBANA (WCIA) — Urbana cross country standout Chian Scott is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week after the junior won the Class 2A Danville regional over the weekend. Scott crossed the finish line in 18:40, twenty-six seconds faster than the nearest competitor. She paced the Tigers, who had four runners finish in the Top 20, as the team advanced to sectionals.

“My coach told me to be relaxed for the first mile and a half and let it rip the last mile and a half so I just followed that and I felt good throughout the whole race,” Scott said.

Scott is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away to one weekly winner in December. To vote for the next Athlete of the Week, click here:
