Peterson signs with Jimmies

The University of Jamestown track and field, and cross country programs has signed Velva native Cassidy Peterson, announced Monday.

Peterson was an all-state cross country runner in both her junior and senior seasons. She helped the Aggies to first, fourth and fourth in the 3,200-meter relay at the last three state meets, respectively.

“I really believe Cassidy has tremendous upside as a runner,” UJ coach Jim Clark said. “She has been such an all-around athlete at Velva. ... She is a person of first-class character and she will be an early contributor to both Jimmie teams.”

Cassidy is the daughter of Renee and David. She plans to major in biochemistry.
