Alton cross country runner Rebecca Adney will continue running in college.
The senior for the Redbirds inked a letter of intent to run for Danville Area Community College on Wednesday morning at AHS.
Adney paced the Alton girls' cross country team in the fall. She joined Hannah Bachelor to be the only two distance runners to advance from the Belleville West Regional in 2014.
Adney turned in a time of 20:43 to advance out of the Class 3A regional in Belleville. She finished 23rd overall, but was tops for Alton. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to qualify for state out of the Quincy Sectional.
Adney will run for head coach Kyle O'Brien for the NJCAA Division II Jaguars. The Jaguars were the 2014 Region 24 champions.
Family, friends, coaches and teammates made their way out Wednesday morning at AHS for a short ceremony to celebrate Adney's signing.
