The saying goes that when the going gets tough, the tough get going, and Nansemond-Suffolk Academy junior cross country star Chandler Bergeron has embodied that adage. After bursting onto the scene in 2014, she has faced greater competitive challenges this year, but she has still maintained a presence at or near the top of the results in the girls’ 5,000-meter run.
Bergeron placed sixth out of 216 runners at the Virginia Independent Schools state cross country championships on Nov. 13. Her placement helped the Lady Saints take fourth out of 22 teams and then led to her becoming the Duke Automotive-Suffolk News-Herald Player of the Week. Congratulations, Chandler!
