The Running Jaguars celebrated two of their key members today, when Manuela and Manuelene Deigh signed their National Letter of Intent to attend Virginia State University this Fall.
Their first experience in organized running began their freshman year when they joined the team. What began as a goal to do something to keep themselves busy and be a part of the school community, turned into a passion that led them signing an NLI to continue their academic/athletic career on the collegiate level. “We always liked running around when we were young it was fun” both said earlier today. “We are very thankful and appreciate everything our family, teammates and friends have done to support us. We want to give a special thank you to Coach Sheppard, who has helped us achieve all these accolades! We are looking forward to the next phase.”
“Manuelene & Manuela have come a long way since their freshman year. They exemplify the core values we teach at CHF, they work hard, they motivate others, and are great students” said Coach Sheppard.
The coaching staff could not ask for anything more from this talented duo. We are extremely proud of them and know success awaits them at VSU.
