BHS grad Elizabeth Nisly named EMU athlete of the week

Eastern Mennonite University junior cross country runner and Bluffton HS grad, Elizabeth Nisly, won her first collegiate race earlier this month, beating 70 other runners, including the runner-up by 15 seconds.

She ran in a pack with two teammates for the first half of the race, before turning on the afterburners over the final 1200m. Her 16:43 was well ahead of Bridgewater's English Jackson, who was second in 16:58.

Coming into the preseason, Elizabeth entered her third cross country season with her third coaching staff.
