Hope Trimmer, a current sophomore, represented Uniontown Area High School at the 2020 PIAA Cross Country Championship meet in Hershey, PA. Placing 10th overall after suffering a significant injury to her foot in the final stretch of the course, Trimmer was thankful to have finished the race. “Earning a spot in the top 10 at a state meet felt amazing”, the sophomore said, “even if it meant a long road to recovery after.” Trimmer recognized that it was not only her hard work during summer conditioning and throughout the season that led her to this point, but also the support and encouragement from her coach, teammates, and family. Trimmer stated, “I have one of the best coaches out there and such overwhelming support from my teammates and family. I wanted to make them proud.”
