Bentley College running star Amy Varsell, former track star at Lewis Mills High School
Of all the accolades, titles and races won over the past dozen years by track star Amy Varsell, one moment stands out.
"When I was 9 years old, I competed in the 50- and 100-meter dashes at the Hershey Track and Field competition at Lewis Mills High, and won my age group," said Varsell. "I still have those ribbons. I love those ribbons."
Little did Varsell know but that first race, thanks to her parents registering her after seeing the race notice in a Burlington Park and Recreation newsletter, would be the springboard to a spectacular cross country, indoor and outdoor track career
