Kristen Mitchell Signs with Lees McRae

From Staff Reports

Kristen Mitchell, daughter of Jim and Tina Mitchell of Cleveland GA, signed a letter of intent on November 13 to attend Lees McRae College in Banner Elk, NC in the fall. Kristen, a stand out cross country and track athlete, has been an important part of the success of the White County Lady Warriors cross country and track team during her high school years. Kristen helped the Lady Warriors finish fourth at the Class AAAA cross country meet this fall. Kristen also won the 7-AAA title in the 800 meter event this past spring. During the signing ceremony, WCHS Coach Sam Borg remarked that all of the trophies surrounding Kristen on the table had been won by the Lady Warriors during the four years Kristen had been at WCHS and he was proud to say that each one had Kristenís name on it. Kristenís grandparents are Benjie and Mary Leaptrott of Wadley and Ray and Joyce Mitchell of Bartow.
