MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Women's Cross Country program and head coach Steven Cary announces the addition of transfer Brooke Datelle (Suwanee) to the 2018 roster.
"Brooke is a tremendous young lady, with lots of passion for the sport," said Cary. "With her transferring in as a junior, she brings lots of maturity and experience to the team. She did experience a pretty significant injury at the end of last year, so this season will be more about development and getting her back on track. I'm excited to see her progress moving forward."
Datelle joins Bobcat Nation after transferring from the University of Georgia. She owns a personal best of 48:50 in the 10K, as well as a 1:48 in the half-marathon for Lambert High under head coach Natalie Leonard. Datelle plans to major in exercise science.
The Bobcat women took third in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Championship in 2017, adding an eighth place finish at the NCAA Southeast Regional. The Bobcats will look to an experienced roster to cover the loss of the top runner in school history in 2017 PBC Runner of the Year Katherine Yost (2017).
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup and the 2017 PBC Sportsmanship Institution of the Year, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
