Anna and Evan will join the Cross County teams, while Maddox Hamm, one of the best Pole Vaulters in the country will compete for the Hokies.

“When I went there, it felt like home,” Bradford said. “The environment, and it reminded me of Scottsboro and how the team is so close.”

“There’s already four Scottsboro athletes on the distance team at track,” Hill said “So I think it’s gonna be easy for me to fit in. I like the other guys I met so far.”

“I think it will be ok because it’s a college town,” Hamm said. “90 percent of the population is associated with the College. So I think it will be OK, but it will be different.”
