New heights: Jillian Richardson blazed the trail for Edward Little

...The homeschooled runner was very much a part of her Eddies team and a leader by example.

“Jillian brings a good leadership to the team,” Edward Little coach Ryan Getchell said. “She’s one of those people that all of the girls on the team like to be around her… Race day comes and she knows what she has to do and she will get the other girls on the team and says, ‘OK, let’s go.’”

Richardson’s personal best came at the Festival of Champions meet where the junior finished in 21st with a time of 19:20. Part of her success this season came from her extra preparation to races with the help of her family, mainly her brother Justin, the Edward Little coach last season.

“I’ve been taking the weekends more seriously and when we don’t have races and stuff,” Richardson said. “Justin (her brother) was the big runner, but everybody is really supportive, so it’s so good. They all come to my races when they can so it makes it fun. My parents go to a lot of them. It’s really helpful that they care about it so I just want to do well so I can make them proud.” ... -the-year/
