Alberta native Petrova inks with CU cross country
Calgary, Alberta, native Sasha Petrova signed scholarship papers with CU cross country for the 2018-19 academic year.

LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland cross country coach Jim Seckel announced the signing of Calgary, Alberta, native Sasha Petrova to scholarship papers this week for the 2018-19 academic year.

Petrova will graduate from William Aberhart High School in Calgary this year, earning three cross country and three track letters. She has posted times of 2:30.05 in the 800-meters, 5:06.40 in the 1,500-meters and 10:56.01 in the 3,000-meters.

“Sasha will be an outstanding addition to our team both in cross country and as a 1,500 and 3,000-meter runner in track,” Seckel said. “I expect her to compete immediately with our fastest returners in our lead group in cross country next fall.”

Petrova joins Abby Gawthorp (St. Joseph, Ill.) in this year’s signing class.
