Bolla earns medal at cross country invitational

Junior Gina Bolla excelled at the Red, White, and Blue cross country invitational on Saturday, claiming a medal in the event.


Bolla took 14th place out of more than 200 female runners, with her personal best time of 19:56. It was the first time Bolla earned a medal in the event, although she was close last year.


“This was my first time medalling. I was really close last year, but I’m glad I did it this year,” Bolla said.


Bolla said she is proud of her achievement and hopes to keep up her strong start this year.


“I’m really happy with my results. I didn’t think I would get as far as I did and this means a lot to me. Now, I would like to keep running under 20 minutes for the whole season,” Bolla said


The cross country team has a section meet Tuesday at White Oak, and Bolla said she is ready for the competition.


“This year is a lot more competitive than it has been in the past and I just look forward to great competition this year,” Bolla said.
