Blanco to run for Indian Hills
Estherville Lincoln Central senior Vanessa Blanco signed a letter of intent to run cross country and track for Indians Hills Community College in 2017-18.
Blanco, the daughter of Luis and Yesenia Blanco of Estherville, has competed in both cross country and girls track for the Midgets.
Indian Hills coach Scott Barnes said Vanessa will contribute immediately.
“We were the 20th team last year and Vanessa will be in our top seven this fall in cross country,” Barnes said. “She’s a good distance and middle distance runner and has good grades which is the kind of well-rounded runner we’re looking for.”
Blanco plans to study international business at Indian Hills.
