It was a great 2011-2012 in both cross country and track across the Keystone State. Many of our seniors will soon be on their way to start their college careers both athletically and academically... so we wanted to salute them one more time in this special feature.
Two standout Altoona Area High School athletes signed NCAA Division I letters-of-intent today so they can pursue higher education while continuing their athletic careers.
Bethany Lender and Aaron Nadolsky, senior members of the Altoona Area High School track and field teams, signed NCAA Division I letters-of-intent today during a news conference at AAHS.

The Final k: Features stories from the 2008 PA Cross Country season by PennTrackXC
Two new course records were set in the varsity races, as Central Cambria swept the team races, but Central Cambria only got one of the records as Altoona held captured the other.
Altoona wins both boys and girls titles as Rachel Gehret contributes 40 points and three district records.
There are some feature events at every meet. At this one, that event was actually multiplied by three, as Junior talents Rachel Gehret, on her home track, and Bradford\'s Erin Hannon, faced off in the three jumps that don\'t involve a pole. And there\'s a hot new sprinter on the line in Altoona, and he\'s just a freshman.
To excel in one event is special. To excel in two remarkable. But to excel in the legal limit an athlete is permitted to enter in a meet, is rare. That kind of rare athlete was witnessed by a large crowd of fans on a sun-drenched day, not once, but three times. Virtually every time you turned around, you saw Rachel Gehret, Amy Backel (pictured taking 2nd in the Shot Put) or Shawn Smith jumping, throwing or sprinting for wins...
Some late-season battles took on greater intrigue after Brad Kanuch and Rachel Gehret showed the state they are ready to compete this season at their bests.
Seven of the 12 athletes running for Pitt, Duke, and Lock Haven in the Distance Medley Relay in early February at the Collegiate Invitational in New York graduated from Pennsylvania high schools.Two are in this photo by John Dye of Dyestat.com...
