Trinity’s Royer Signs with Union

Jackson, TN—Union University added one of the top area runners to their cross country program with the signing of Janelle Royer. Coach Gary Johnson of Union says, "Janelle is, and was all season, our top choice if we could sign any one from West Tennessee. She displays a very humble, Christ-like attitude and will add quality to our cross country program, as well as, our school." Johnson adds, "Janelle has been coached very well at Trinity and I pray she will continue to grow as an athlete and a person during her years with us."

Royer will be joining former teammate, Chris Winter, who is already attending Union and will be part of the Men’s cross country program which will begin competing next fall. Johnson says, "I hope all the top area runners will choose Union, that is definitely a goal of mine, to attract runners like Cameron Groll, Jill Konkol, Shannon Rudd Andy Metcalf, Ami Joglekar, Anna Winter and the list could go on. Memphis and West Tennessee have produced some of the top talent in the state; my job will be getting them to come to Union University.
