Groveland Elementary Girls on the Run team successfully completed their inaugural season by completing the Track Shack Orlando Utilities Commission 5K in downtown Orlando this month.
Girls on the Run is a not-for-profit, positive youth development program which combines running with an interactive curriculum to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The girls met twice a week for 12 weeks with their coach Kathy Smith, and assistant coaches Ashley Poling and Rachel Rozar; all teachers at Groveland Elementary School.
The team consisted of 16 third, fourth and fifth grade girls. Congratulations to Camryn Dykes, Wilmari Gardner, Lili Box, Haley Rozar, Andrea Mejia, Cydney Peters, Jasmin Vogel, Rianna Crumpton, Michelle Torno, Melody Holloway, Madison Galladay, Calah Strawbridge, Darby Hyatt, Julia Benedict, Delila Benten, and Janyia Key for a job well done.
