1981 Outstanding Tri-County Sports Figure
Betsy had the kind of day runners dream about in mid-November when she won her state
title over a 2.1 mile course in Detweiller Park in a record time of 11 minutes and 22
seconds, whipping the 1979 and 1980 state champions in the process, and cutting 12
seconds off of the previous record.
She created new records in every high school meet she ran in this past season and finished the season unbeaten. As a sophomore in high school she was 6th in the State run and as a junior she finished third.
Betsy may do her running next year in the Big Ten, seriously considering Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
