Aspyn Britt signs with College of the Ozarks
Gainesville High School senior Aspyn Britt signed a letter of intent Friday, Feb. 23, to run cross country at College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout. Aspyn is pictured with her parents, Penny and Gene Britt (seated), her high school running coach Gary Emrick (standing, back left) and C of O cross country coach Clint Woods. Britt, a three-time Summit Conference champion, went down in the Gainesville High School record books last fall when she became the first cross country runner in the school’s history to medal at the state level. She set a new personal record, running 3.1 miles in 20:55 to place 18th out of 164 runners at the Missorui State Class 2 cross country meet in Jefferson City.
