Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Meet our Trinity Mother Frances Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Athlete of the Week, Christina Nelson, track star from Pine Tree High School.
Nelson is one of the best cross country runners in East Texas.
She is the district 5K champion, running it in just under 19 minutes.
She set a school record in the two-mile run at this year's Lobo Relays and got a top three finish for her age group in the Dallas Half Marathon.
Nelson told KETK, she hopes to run in college and was very really excited when she found out she was our athlete of the week.
