Danielle Jordan, a senior running in her last Warrior race, finished the 5K event at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes (NAIA) Championships in 59th place over the weekend. Last year she placed 126th in the same Championships.
The improved showing was no surprise to cross country coach Norm Berney.
“Last year she was recovering from three major injuries, and by putting in many hours of rehab and training, she has been improving every race this year. She has a determination and work ethic which is hard to find in most runners.”
Also running in the Kenosha, Wisconsin race was Carli Moller, a sophomore, who placed 200th. Berney noted that Moller still holds the school record at Corban for fastest cross country time.
“Both of these runners are a delight to work with,” said Berney. “God blessed the school and myself when they chose Corban.”
