GMS 8th grade student Michaela Werner competed in the recent Williams Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa with some impressive results.

Werner, the daughter of Karen and Robert Werner of Grove, competed in the 13.1 mile half-marathon completing the distance in a time of 1:39.45. That pace was enough to place Werner atop her age division for the competition. Additionally her time ranked her 121st out of 2118 total entrants and 19th out of 1254 for her gender.

Werner has attended Grove school since kindergarten and began running two years ago.
