Congratulations Ellyn Snider!
Ellyn Snider is a young track star. I like to think of her more as a “track stud”. She was recently named Sun Sentinel’s and The Palm Beach Post’s “Runner of the Year” (for 2012), and has also received honorable mentions from FLRunners.com. But that’s not all. Ellyn also won the FACA All-Star Cross Country Meet (a meet that invites the best girls from around the state and separates them by region – north/south/east/west). She also just happened to be the first girl from the south to win that meet!
Ellyn finished 5th at States and 3rd at Regions, and was District, County, City and Conference Champion. Ellyn also set the course records at the Delray Beach Golf Course and Okeeheelee Park, and has a PR of 18:31.
She currently has numerous schools expressing interest in her (University of Miami, Baylor University, and Florida Gulf Coast to name a few), but she’s still keeping her options open. As long as she keeps up the hard work in the classroom and on the track, there’s no doubt in my mind she’ll be highly recruited by numerous top schools.
Good job Ellyn, we’re very happy for you and extremely proud. Keep up the good work!
