Duncan, S.C.—The North Greenville women’s cross country team picked up another solid runner for the upcoming season, as Byrnes High School star Victoria Davies signed her National Letter of Intent to run for the Crusaders for the next four years.
“We are extremely excited to have Tori,” remarked new cross-country/track and field coach Jake Simms. “We are excited to see how her amazing talent will contribute to an already improving team.”
Davies has several solid personal records, including an 18:58 in the 5k, a 2:25 in the 800 meter, and a 5:24 in the 1600 meter. “I narrowed my choices to Clemson and North Greenville,” Davies told scrunners.com. “Once I visited both schools, I knew NGU was the only choice. I am so excited to be given the opportunity to continue running in college. I can’t imagine ever not running, and I am not ready for my competitive running career to be over.”
Victoria Davies also excels in the classroom, and is a Reserves Commander for the Byrnes Air Force Junior ROTC. In September, Davies organized a charity 5k that raised $2,000, which was put towards funding two education scholarships. She will finish her senior year in June, and enroll at NGU for the 2014 fall semester.
