Wednesday Night Laundry Runners scholarship winners

Eight senior distance runners from track or cross country from Monterey County have been awarded scholarships to continue running in college by the Wednesday Night Laundry Runners.
 Among them is King City distance ace Roman Munoz, who went to the state meet last year in both cross country and track, capturing a Central Coast Section Division IV title in cross country.
 "The purpose of the WNLR scholarship fund is to recognize local excellence in athletic and academic achievement, and to help Monterey County student-athletes achieve broader success,'' said Mike Dove, co-founder of the WNLR Scholarship Program.
 Joining Munoz is San Jose State bound Evelin Meza, who went to the state meet in cross country last fall for Greenfield, and Salinas' Kayla Clayton, who also reached the state cross country meet.
 Rounding out the elite group is King City's Jesus Avalos, Salinas' Alfredo Mejia, Seaside's Isaias Rodriguez, Alisal's Jorge Rodriguez and Pacific Grove's Anna Stefanou.
 Students were nominated by their coaches, and the size of the scholarship was based on the athletes times, academic performance, leadership and community service activities.
