SOUTH BEND – Crowds showed up at the South Bend Regional Airport this afternoon to greet Mishawaka High School sophomore Anna Rohrer, who won the Foot Locker National High School Cross Country Championship in San Diego.
On hand were a number of family members, classmates, and team mates to welcome her home.
She actually fell during the race but she still managed to finish first.
“It’s just insane, the whole experience,” Rohrer said. “It’s kind of like living your wildest
Dream, and so it’s been great meeting all the athletes and having my family come along with me and everyone here when getting back. It’s just amazing.”
It's been a great year for Rohrer. She also won a state cross country title this fall.
There will be a school assembly for her Monday afternoon at Mishawaka high school at 2:40 p.m.
By the way, there is also an article about her in this week's Sports Illustrated.
