EDEN WINSLOW, CLASS OF 2018
On Saturday, September 8, 2018, 2018 Culver City High School graduate Eden Winslow participated in her first college XC meet running for Dordt College in Sioux City, Iowa in the Dordt College XC Classic. She finished 4th out of 50 in the women's 5k race running 20:30 with her team mates finishing 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. In her first race of her college career she was the highest placed freshman in the race.
Culver City High School Cross Country runner
Melany joined our cross country team in her freshman year in 2015 and she was the most determined runner on the team, something which has carried over into her subsequent years in academics. At the end of her sophomore year she came to me to tell me that she had taken a placement test that would allow her to go to West LA College skipping her high school junior and senior years. Although I was disappointed to loose her, she stated that she wanted to complete here degree in education to help support her family. Who could object to that? Her first semester at West LA she took 25 units when the norm is 12 to 15. As a result she will complete her AA degree studies in one and a half years. She has submitted her application and been approved for a mid year transfer to the University of Pittsburgh. She is now the only female member of the West LA College Cross Country team. This past Saturday she returned to the Culver City High School XC team practice and ran with the team. It was great to see her and learn of her accomplishments since she left us. She will go a long way in her career, whatever she chooses.
