SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College has signed two athletes to its cross country program.
Guadalupe "Lupe" Vazquez, of Sanford, is a student at Lee County High School. "I had the honor of coaching Lupe in high school and I know the level of dedication she has in the classroom, to the sport, and, more importantly, to her team," said CCCC Head Cross Country Coach Jacob Ashworth. "Lupe is a great leader on and off the field. I am excited that I get to continue to coach her for another two years."
