It’s official! Georgetown High School senior Kelsey Miller will continue her running career at Rio Grande University. The mid to long-distance runner will compete in both cross country as well as track and field at Rio Grande following high school graduation.

Miller signed her letter of intent during a signing ceremony at Georgetown Jr./Sr. High School on April 15 with family, friends, coaches and other school staff members present.  

Miller has had an outstanding career as a Georgetown student/athlete, a four-year cross country runner who is currently in her fourth year of track and field.

Twice she earned Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference National Division First Team honors in cross country, and as a freshman she was selected to the SBAAC National Division Second Team in cross country.

She is also a three-time SBAAC National Division track and field all-star, earning First Team honors as a freshman and Second Team honors as a sophomore and junior. She’s been working hard to earn league all-star honors in track and field once again at the end of the 2016 regular season.

She plans to study Psychology while at Rio Grande.
