ODAC Feature | Abigail Shelly, Eastern Mennonite

Aug 28, 2020

Abigail Shelly is a recent graduate of Eastern Mennonite University. In addition to being a three-time top-35 runner at the ODAC Cross Country Championships, Shelly helped start the Royals triathlon program. In fact, she thrived in the emerging sport, finishing 13th in the national event! Biking was always going to be her most difficult part of triathlon -- it also includes running and swimming legs, of which she had experience -- but her triathlon efforts came in handy when she and fellow Royals Hannah Chappell-Dick, Michaela Mast, and Joanna Friesen biked the ENTIRE Blue Ridge Parkway over an eight-day period in July!
