Young signs to run cross country for Norse

GLADSTONE – James Young of Gladstone is signing with Bay College to continue his academic and athletic career. He will be a member of the Norse cross country team.

Young chose Bay because he is close with Coach Murtha and he still has the opportunity to be involved with his community.

In the fall, Young hopes to be a runner who leads by example.

“I’m just really excited for this opportunity,” said Young. “It’s obviously something that’s really cool. It’s new. I get to move on and run at the collegiate level. That’s something that is just awesome. I hope to bring some leadership qualities. Running is one of those things where you have to lead by example. One person goes, the other person follows, and I just hope to be the person that leads the pack.”

Young plans to get into physical therapy in the future. Best of luck to James at Bay College.
