Maryssa Depies can run! And run fast! This past Saturday, the Rocket ladies cross-country team competed in the elite Cougar-Falcon meet held on Calvin College’s campus where Rocket Junior, Maryssa Depies shattered the long-held cross-country school record held by Rocket Alum Alexis Lund by 13 seconds. Maryssa broke into the elite status of the 17 minute mark for the first time in her career clocking in at 17:57, breaking Alexis’ record of 18:10.
Maryssa’s record-setting time (17:57) is also the fastest time ever recorded for lady harriers in the Greater Muskegon County Area.
Mr. Beckeman, Principal at R-PHS had a conversation with Maryssa about her recent performance.
