USCB cross country, track star overcomes tragic childhood in Ethiopia

Saturday in Charlotte, Betsy Douglas finished 8th (in 17:50, a school record) at the NAIA National Championships, becoming USCB's first All-American in cross country. The day capped off a remarkable season for Douglas, a junior, who dominated the Sun Conference en route to being named conference runner of the year. As thankful as Betsy is for her athletic success, she'll always be most grateful for the tragic circumstances she overcame, before age 8, as a child in Ethiopia.
