Milligan gains Science Hill standout

from staff reports

   Science Hill cross country standout Lindsey Davis signed with Milligan College on Thursday, meaning she will run for head coach Chris Layne in the fall.
   Davis helped lead the Science Hill women's cross country team to two straight top ten state finishes, in 2002 and 2003.
   As a junior, Davis finished 49th overall at the Class AAA state meet with a time of 20:13, as Science Hill's women finished eight overall. In 2003, she suffered an early-season stress fracture, but made a late season return to help the Lady Hilltoppers finish 10th at the state meet. She finished 88th overall.
   Coach Layne looks forward to Lindsey joining the team in the fall.
   "Lindsey will not only help us athletically, but she brings a great deal of determination to our program," he said. "She is battling back from two serious injuries which proves her desire to run, and this is what were looking for at Milligan."
