Marlene Hernandez, Writer

Elizabeth Files has had an astronomical season this year. Many personal records were broken and she placed in the top 10 in various meets as well. Her two-mile PR is a time of 13:52.28 and her 3000 meter is a PR of 11:39.07. She is a freshman at Chaffin Junior High and an excellent role model as well as an outstanding student-athlete. At the Greenwood Cross Country Invitational, she came in fifth place with a time of 14:19.40. She has competed with multiple girls coming from all over Arkansas, yet still manages to come in the top ten.

The last final XC meet will be on October 22nd, 2020 at Van Buren Freshman Academy. The junior high girls will be running at 5:00 p.m. and the junior high boys at 5:40. Make sure to come on down to support Elizabeth and the rest of the team!
