Track & Field/XC
"Running has always been my therapy. Especially during these difficult times. Usually when I’m feeling tired, unmotivated, and lazy I go for a run and come back feeling like a champion. That’s the beauty of a good run."
– Hanna Peterson,
Track & Field/Cross Country 2015

Anna Chappell Soho (WBK)
PTSD effects 20% of the American population and that includes more than just our “Military & Veteran Community”. Women’s Basketball Letterwinner, Anna Chappell Soho, created an awareness sticker to support and positively identify people affected by PTSD when they are driving on the road. Thank you for keeping our communities safe Anna! #wildcatspayitforward
