Finneytown Cross Country Runner Headed to State

Finneytown Cross Country runner, Jessica Sanders, heads to State Cross Country meet at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Jessica will represent Finneytown as the first Cross Country athlete to advance to a state meet in seven years, albeit as a freshman.

Young Jessica is no stranger to hard work, perseverance, and winning. She won the Finneytown Wildcat 5k in 2014 for her age group. She ran Cross Country in 7th and 8th winning a Cincinnati Hills League title both years. She has worked exceptionally hard all season improving her personal record and overcoming injuries.  

Additionally, Jessica is involved with other school activities playing trombone with the Finneytown Marching Band. On top of this, she continues to be a great academic student. Let’s wish her best of luck at state.
