She is a great role model.”
“It is awesome to watch a great student earn her place in the state cross country meet,” said Greenville High School Principal Stanley Huges. “Greenville High School is very proud to support Isabelle and to have Isabelle as our representative this weekend. We couldn’t ask for a better student-athlete or person to be recognized for her accomplishments.”
Rammel’s high school career includes qualifying all four year for Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Regionals as well as earning the Wendy’s High school Heisman for Greenville City Schools.
“Isabelle works extremely hard at everything she does,” said Greenville head cross country coach Stephanie Lind. “She has a 33 Act score, 3.992 GPA and should have an associate’s degree by the time she graduates high school. She plans to study pre-law in college.”
