CAPAC — Melissa Sawicki, a 2008 graduate of Capac High School, will start her sophomore season with the Cornerstone University women's cross country team just a few weeks from now.
As a freshman, Sawicki proved an impact performer at the Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference school. There she furnished her squad's fourth quickest 5K time (20:01) and fourth swiftest 6K clocking (24:16).
