The 2018 duPont Manual cross country team is going to be without their top returning runner. Junior Mye'cia Bright has transferred to Illinois and is enrolled at Belleville East in the southwestern portion of the state near St. Louis.
Bright was the third ranked returning Class of 2020 member for this upcoming cross country season. She placed 6th at the state cross country meet last season and was a key component of the team title for duPont Manual. This past track season, she placed 8th at the state meet in the 800m while being a key part of the state champion 4x800 meter relay team for the Crimsons.
Coach Tim Holman said, "We are already missing having Mye'cia around. She is such a positive and friendly teammate and I have no doubt she will bring that same energy to her new team in Illinois."
We got to see that outgoing personality when we talked with the ladies of duPont Manual before they went to Oregon last season for Nike Cross Nationals.
