Emily Godwin, a sophomore, from Buckhannon-Upshur earned her 2nd silver medal in as many days at the USA AAU Junior Olympics at Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans, La. Competing in the intermediate girls age division Godwin cleared 5' 8" in the high jump to take 2nd place out of 65 competitors. Kendall Williams of Kennesaw, Ga won her 2nd gold medal by clearing the bar at 5' 10". The winning height equaled Godwin's best jump of the year when Godwin cleared 5' 10" at a Lewis County meet for the 5th best mark in the U.S. for a high school athlete.


Godwin, the WVRunners female athlete of the year, is compiling quite a resume.
