Recognizing Sophie Chase for earning All American Honors


Madame Chairman:

I’d like to congratulate Lake Braddock Junior, Sophie Chase for her participation in the Footlocker National Cross Country Finals in San Diego on December 10 which earned her All-American Honors. Sophie qualified from the South Region on Thanksgiving weekend with a time of 17:06, the third fastest in Virginia history for the 5,000 meters.

This is her second consecutive year participating in the National finals. As a sophomore last year Sophie was one of the youngest participants in the race and finished 38th overall. She took her experience of the course and trained year long and vowed to come back and overpower the difficult course. This year she came in 11th with a time of 17:44 which was 23 seconds behind the first place finisher.

She is the 8th runner in Lake Braddock History to qualify for the National finals and the 3rd to make All American at this event.  .

Without objection, I ask that the Board of Supervisors congratulate Sophie Chase for her achievement and invite her before the Board at a date to be determined to be formally recognized.
