Scappoose senior will run both cross country and track at Idaho college
Scappoose runner Tia Carnahan has signed a Letter of Intent to run cross country and track at Lewis-Clark State College in Idaho.
Carnahan, a distance runner at Scappoose High won the district title for the second time this past season. The Lady Indians finished fourth at state last season. She was named the Tribe outstanding runner for the cross country season and set a personal record of 19:36 on the 5,000K course.
Lewis-Clark Coach Mike Collins noted, Tia is a wonderful young lady and we are excited about adding her to our program. Shes a small-school girl that we believe will show even more of what she is capable of in our program. Her 3,000-meter track time from a year ago would have qualified her for the NAIA Indoor National Championships right now. We fully expect to see her take it to another level in cross country. She has already shown an inner confidence and determination that is a key characteristic that we have seen in some of our best runners. We expect great things, and I am sure she does too.
Im looking forward to it and very excited to go, Carnahan said. She plans to major in criminal justice and minor in forensic science at the college. She will have an athletic scholarship.
