EAST UNION, Miss. (WTVA) - East Union's Sarah Duley signed with Blue Mountain College's cross country program on Friday.

In track and field, Duley owns the school record in the 1600 meters (5:52.98). She has two bronze and one silver medal in state competition and led the Urchins to a program-best third-place finish in the state meet.

In cross country, Duley owns the school record in the 5K (20:25.00). Individually, she has three bronze medals and one silver in state competition, and she's been part of two state championship teams.

"They were the only team that really stood out to me and said, 'hey, you're going to join a family, you're gonna be part of a team that we include each other', because going to college....you're considered an adult now, so, it's nice to have a support system," Duley said.

Blue Mountain also signed two men's cross country runners to its JV program - Ivan Wood of Mooreville and Ben Russell of Pontotoc.
