A Raider Buzz feature:

Congratulations to Stephanie Thomas, who achieved All-American status at the NJCAA Division I National Championship!

Thomas — a freshman who ran in her first 5k only two months ago — finished 35 overall (19:20.0) in the women’s championship race at Nationals. She is the first athlete in GRCC’s cross country program to earn All-American honors.

A Grand Rapids Christian High School graduate, she was also named to the All-Region XII First Team and received All-MCCAA, MCCAA All-Freshman, and MCCAA Freshman of the Year honors.
