Xavier Prep graduates keep on running

A pair of former Xavier Prep distance runners are still making headlines after moving beyond the school’s hallowed halls.

They are 2002 graduate Stephanie Rothstein and 2010 product Jessica Tonn, who were among 28 of the nation’s elite runners who competed in the USATF New York Mini USA 10K Race held in New York City’s Central Park on June 8.

Rothstein finished second and Tonn eighth in the event.  The two former Gators continue to participate in similar USATF showcases throughout the year, with great success.

Way to go, Stephanie and Jessica! Keep it going!
