West Holmes Athletics held a media reception in the high school library Thursday evening to recognize the acceptance of a Division I scholarship offer for Lady Knight Cross Country great, Michelle Hostettler. Hostettler is the daughter of Doug and Brenda Hostettler of Glenmont and will be taking her talents next year to the University of Toledo to continue her running career and her education.
Michelle, pictured here with her parents, as well as her coaches Kevin Beachy and Michael Ewing, is excited to take the next step to run collegiately and is looking forward to the challenge of Division I competition and will be entering the nursing program at Toledo.
Michelle has dedicated herself to the sport and considers it “like a job”, but one that she truly loves. That dedication has paid off, as she has finished as an All-Ohioan the past 2 seasons, with a third place finish in the state her junior year and a sixth place finish her senior year. Michelle has also garnered multiple invitational, district and regional championships in her 4 year span at West Holmes, as well as also standing atop the podium at the State Track meet over the past few 3 seasons.
Good luck to Michelle, as we will all be rooting for her as she leaves West Holmes to start the next chapter of her career, and life!
