Shelby Vollmer is running just as fast as she can — something that is working out quite nicely for the 19-year-old City College cross-country runner. In fact, Vollmer holds the fastest individual time on the women’s team in five of the seven meets held since the season started in September.
It’s taken quite a bit of hard work though for Vollmer to be where she is today according to head coach Marisa Avendano.
“Shelby’s done really great,” said Avendano. “Her times have dropped so much and that’s because of her hard work and dedication, not only to herself but to the team as well.”
Vollmer hasn’t always excelled, however, says Avendano.
