RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Recent high-school graduate Michelle Camacho (Moonachie, N.J./Wood-Ridge) has signed a national letter of intent to continue her cross-country career at Felician College, Felician head coach John Brennan announced today.
During her two years on the varsity with Wood-Ridge High's cross-country and track & field squads, Camacho was named the team's Most Improved and Most Valuable runner. She intends to enroll in Felician's pre-physician assistant program in the fall.
