BCHS Senior Signs to Run Cross Country at Georgia Southwestern
BCHS Senior Signs to Run Cross Country at Georgia Southwestern

One might say Jessi Young has done a little bit of everything when it comes to sports.  She was a member of the 2004 10 and under Cochran-Bleckley Rec. Department softball team that won state. 

In middle school, her athletic endeavors included cross country and cheerleading.  In high school, she's been a competition and game squad cheerleader, and was one of 32 finalists for the GACA All-State team this year. 

She'll be going to Lamar County Saturday for sectionals in pole vault.   As a freshman track runner, she finished eighth in state in the 3200 meter run.  She finished third in region in the 1600 meter run her junior year.

That running prowess paid off as Thursday she signed a letter of intent to run cross country at Georgia Southwestern University.  She will join brother Chase Young who is playing baseball for the Hurricanes.
