Senior Sabrina Hudgins can now officially roar as a Lion.
Hudgins, who’s run with Tupelo XC since the 7th grade, made her decision Wednesday to join the University of North Alabama cross country team in Florence, AL later this fall.
Hudgins has personal bests in the 5K with 20:49, the 4K with 15:50, and the 3200 with 12:45. She ran in her first high school state meet in the 8th grade and competed in Jackson for five-straight seasons.
UNA head coach Scott Trimble will get a strong-willed and dedicated runner from Lady Wave head coach Anna Kathryn Sloan. Last season, UNA cross country ran in six events including Clinton’s Watson Ford Invitational. They finished 6th in the Division II South Regional in 2013.
