Vina senior signs offer to run for Blue Mountain College

Vina senior Elizabeth Baty has signed a cross-country scholarship with Blue Mountain College in Mississippi.

“I am blessed to get to run for Blue Mountain College,” said Baty, whose PR time in the 5K is 21:44. “I felt at home when I toured the campus. I’m glad to have the opportunity to run at the collegiate level.”

Baty’s best time in the two-mile run is 13:53, and her best mile time is 6:18.

“I am very proud of how hard Elizabeth has worked and how determined she has been throughout her career,” Vina coach Paul Humphres said. “It is an honor and a privilege to have coached her.”

Blue Mountain cross-country coach Page Thorn looks forward to having the same opportunity.

“I can already see that Elizabeth has such a sweet spirit and also a high level of determination,” Thorn said last week. “She will be a key part of our team, and I’m really thankful to be signing her.”
