Eleven-year-old Anna Foster is in sixth grade at Windham Middle School. She competes in soccer, track and field, cross country, gymnastics, skiing and shooting sports. She’s been a stand out athlete on the middle school cross country team. Foster just won the state USATF cross country race, this past weekend, and she will attend the USATF regionals in New York on November 24.
Foster also missed breaking the middle school cross country championships record in South Portland by 1 second. Coach Paula Pock said, “Anna finished first in the junior girls competition in the middle school championship. She is a talented runner with a bright future.”
Her parents, David and Nicole, said “It was an exciting first year of cross country for her and we are so proud. Foster also lives with her brothers Sebastian, 14, Ezra, 8 and David, 3.
Foster would like to go to college to be a doctor or a teacher. She is in her sixth year in Girl Scout Troop 12 and her seventh year of 4H.
Her motto in any competition is “always do my best, stay focused and never give up.”
Best way to unwind after competition: Relax and stretch, eat lots of food. Hang out with my friends and cheer on other competitors.
