Britt signs with CU Women's Cross Country

LEBANON, Tenn.--Cumberland cross country coach Jim Seckel announces the addition of Hope Britt to the 2021-22 recruiting class.

Britt is a native of Thrall, Texas and attended Providence Homeschool. She lettered in cross country, track and field, and soccer while in high school. She finished third in the state homeschool meet in the 800m and fourth in the 1600m in 2021. Britt had a strong showing at the TAIAO State Track Meet finishing first in the 1600m and third in the 800m this past season.

"Hope is a great fit for our program," Coach Seckel said, "We are getting an athlete who is self-motivated, has a great work ethic, and is a great teammate.  She is the perfect addition to complete our Fall 2021 recruiting class."

Britt plans to study kinesiology while at Cumberland. She wants to use her degree to help others, particularly in the prevention and recovery of sports-related injuries. 

She is the daughter of Chris and Wendy Britt.
