Ava Whitney: grit, determination, and maturity

WILLIAMSVILLE — I appreciated Randolph T. Holhut's recent Sports Roundup column in which he highlighted the talented athlete, Ava Whitney, and her heartfelt appeal for more awareness and support for the Brattleboro Union High School cross country, Nordic skiing, and track teams.

These endurance sports have had outsider status for decades, yet despite this reality, Ava Whitney has clearly developed grit, determination, and maturity through her distance endeavors.

Thank you, Mr. Holhut, for sharing an inspiring profile of local talent.
