Carlile selected as December Athlete of the Month

Addison Carlile, 8, of Fishers has been named the USATF Indiana Athlete of the Month for December 2016.  Carlile, who competes for the Northside Saints, placed second in the 8 & under girls race at the USATF National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships last month in Hoover, Alabama.  She had the highest finish of the 262 Indiana athletes that competed in the championships.  She ran 8:25 over the 2 km course to only trail Yamilet Lopez of California.
This is the second year in a row that Carlile earned all-American honors at the nationals.  Last year she finished 15th in just her first season of competitive running.  She was recently named the 2016 Athlete of the Year (Youth Cross Country - 8u Girls).
