Junior Salsabeel Awwad knows how to go the distance. She was a standout cross country runner for Oak Lawn Community High School in the fall and improved her time from meet to meet. Now she is leading the girls track team in the distance events.
At the Olivet Nazarene University 3A Invitational, Awwad ran the 800-meter event in a time of 2:37.54. That time was good enough to earn her fourth place out of 40 athletes.
“Salsabeel has been a leader on the team and continues to strive for success,” head coach Brian Fiene said. “We are looking forward to much success this season.”
