Rachel Ditto joins GC's women's cross country and track and field teams for the 2011-12 season.
Rachel Ditto becomes the fourth runner to ink a deal with Georgetown College as part of the 2011-12 class for cross country and track and field for coach Betsy Laski.
"Our teams are really going to benefit with the addition of Rachel," Laski said. "I'm very excited about our incoming class."
The Boyle County High School graduate won the 1,600-meter and 3,200-meter runs recently in the Region 5 Class AA meet in a time of 5:38 and 12:32 respectively. Ditto will compete in both events in Thursday's Class AA State Meet.
Ditto is strong at the longer distances as well, placing 28th at the Class AA State Cross Country Meet this year. Her personal best in the 5k is 20:16.
Joining Ditto at her signing are her mom and dad, Boyle County coach, her brother and sister, Laski and BCHS' athletic director.
