Cross Country: Hampton grad leading the way at Grove City

Written by Joe Bendel on .

Joe Bendel profiles Hampton graduate Emily Rabenhold, who is now a standout cross country runner at Grove City.

"Emily Rabenold was over-run by cross country after her senior year at Hampton High School. The sport brought too much angst, too much frustration, too much disappointment.

So she quit.

"I would crash and burn," she said. "All of my races would end up the same way: With me sobbing and crying. I hated it. I would think, 'Why would someone do this to themselves.' It was horrible."

A highly competitive runner since middle school, Rabenold found insufficient ways to fill the void during her freshman year at Grove City College."
