Hutson will be going to Carson Newman College to compete for the Lady Eagles cross country and track team,s while fellow senior Makayla Kington will be going to Tennessee Tech to throw for Crossville native Tony Cox.

“Both of these girls have done what they needed in the classroom and on the playing field to get to the next level. Makayla gets one more shot next week at the TSSAA State Championships. Unfortunately for Rachel she came up just short of her goal going to get to state meet. I am excited to see what they will be able to accomplish at the next level," said Head track coach Matt Bates.

She has been a member of the track and field team for two years.

Hutson, who has been on the team for three years, ran 6:34.08 in the 1600 meters at the TSSAA A/AA East Middle Sub-sectional, placing sixth, and ran a personal best 13:006.13 in the 3200-meters at the TSSAA A/AA East Middle Subsection, placing third.
