Susan emerged as a standout in Cross Country and Track, showcasing unparalleled determination and resilience. Initially, she had to train with the boys’ team in Cross Country during her first two years of high school due to the absence of girls’ races until 1978. However, her unwavering resolve yielded significant success, culminating in her becoming a two-time EHL Champion and State Qualifier in 1978 and 1979.

Equally remarkable was her performance on the track, where she left an indelible mark by setting the Madeira school record for the Mile Run. Her prowess and dedication led to a remarkable achievement as she clinched third place in the State in that event in 1978, cementing her legacy as one of Madeira High School’s finest athletes.
