Midway Univ. cross-country signs four to letters of intent

The Midway University cross-country program has signed four student-athletes – Shawn Dickerson, Josette Isaacs, Morgen Bitner and Nicole Schowalter – to letters of intent. “Signing is going better than hoped,” said Midway head coach Rob Lyon. “We have a team that will be competitive in most meets we attend and especially at our conference meet.” Dickerson comes from Spencer County High School and became the first male to sign a letter of intent to run cross country for Midway. During this past season, his time dropped nearly three minutes. According to Lyon, he has a tremendous upside as he has been only running cross-country for one year. He will be majoring in criminal justice. Isaacs comes to Midway from East Carter High School. A four-year member of the team, she has a personal best time of 21:44, which enabled her to challenge for individual honors in most meets in high school and will make her an immediate contributor to the Midway team. She plans on studying pre-medicine. Bitner comes to Midway from Tipton, Ind., where she competed and lettered for four years. A very consistent runner, her personal best of 22:44 will enable her to contend for regular season and conference honors. She is transferring to Midway from Ivy Tech (Indiana) with plans to major in equine rehab. A native of Dayton, Schowalter transferred to Midway from St. Catharine College, where she was a standout distance runner. Her personal best of 20:17 should make her a threat for individual honors in most meets and especially at the conference meet. She is majoring in psychology. “All of these student-athletes have the potential to challenge for conference honors and to make Midway University a competitive team” said Lyon. “They are not only outstanding runners, but also excel in the classroom.” Lyon indicated he is hoping to add an additional eight student-athletes to this year’s team.
