Coed Varsity Cross Country · Athlete of the Week: Sarah McCann


Congratulations to Sarah McCann for being named Athlete of the Week. This weekly award is sponsored by the Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department.

Sarah is a sophomore on the Cross Country team and started running in the 8th grade. Sarah decided to start running because she had friends on the team and they convinced her to join. “My goal for this season is to get a low PR,” Sarah said. Sarah loves the feeling she gets from running and says that it is a stress reliever. Although not a runner, Sarah says her role model in sports is Serena Williams because she grew up watching her play tennis. “I also play soccer and basketball and want to attend John Jay College in New York because I love forensic science,” she stated.

Coach Melko said the following about the great qualities Sarah brings to the team: “Sarah’s dedication, work effort, and enthusiasm make her a valuable member of the team. We can count on her to be a big part of our team’s success.”
