Danville's Garbutt signs with Illinois

Cross country standout finished 3rd at Class 2A state meet

DANVILLE (WCIA) -- Shanice Garbutt signed her National Letter of Intent to continue running at the University of Illinois Wednesday afternoon. The Danville senior finished third at the IHSA Class 2A state cross country meet earlier this month with a time of 17:14.

"It's very nice for me because I didn't want to go too far away but knowing that I'm close to home that feels good," Garbutt said. "I'm so happy, I'm so proud of myself because it makes me see that I'm very important."

Garbutt also qualified for the Class 3A state track and field meet last season, finishing 7th in the 3200-meter race.
