This story just got alot better. 15:40 for 3rd at Nationals. She had an ankle injury in the fall, was getting better throughout indoors, then ran 16:23 in her first outdoor race. From there she only got better, winning Heps against a tough field, qualifying out of the East with a school record 15:59, then shattering it again with a phenomenal race at nats. She is a class act and she deserves this. Her first year coach, Mark Coogan, also deserves a ton of credit for what he did with Abbey and the rest of the girls this year.
Watch out for Abbey and Dartmouth!!!
