Crews running cruise control to Chattanooga


Ryan Crews is headed to Tennessee-Chattanooga to run cross-country and track, but the 18-year-old Farragut High School senior is thinking academics first.

"I chose the Mocs because of their physical therapy program, that's what I would like to get into," Crews said after his signing ceremony in the FHS Commons Wednesday, May 11. "And because I like the area, that's where my brother went (former FHS star Dusty Crews)." As for positive influences in his career, "coach Ivens has definitely helped me out learning how to run," Crews said.

"His specialty will probably be the five-K or ten-K when he gets to college," FHS cross country head coach Kellie Ivens said. "His hard work and dedication to what he's doing is the main thing that he has going for him because he cares about it and works hard at it."


In track, "He's (been) our better leg on the four-by-eight-hundred," FHS track and field head coach Scott McKenzie said. "His best (800-meter) time is right under two-(minutes) flat."

At the Class AAA state cross-country meet last fall, Crews finished 17th, just two places "and less than two seconds from being All-state," Ivens said.
