ISU track and field coach: 'She’s one of the most ultimate competitive athletes I’ve ever coached'
HINCKLEY – Injuries aren’t typically blessings. But Illinois State track and field coach Jeff Bovee sees one involving runner Audrey Harrod as just that.
Harrod, a Hinckley-Big Rock graduate who just completed her freshman year with the Redbirds, was forced to sit out a majority of the season due to a stress fracture in her right leg.
The 2017 Daily Chronicle Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year missed the entire indoor track season and nearly half of the outdoor season because of the injury she suffered at the end of her high school career.
