Submitted 2 years 2 months ago by jcook.

FAIRBANKS-Scott Jerome's women's cross country team picked up players for this fall's season through recruiting. But how about an in-house recruit?

Bente Heller, one of the best swimmer's in UAF program history, will run for the cross country team this upcoming season.

Heller, a senior, graduates after the fall semester and by running will complete 10 semesters of competition for a student athlete per a NCAA rule.

She will join a team that returns all its freshmen from last year like Kali Striker and West Valley product Dorothy O'Donnell. Heller has run a number of triathlons back in her native Germany.
