Georgetown, KY – In case you didn’t recognize the name, Betsy Evans Laski – GC’s women’s Track and Cross Country coach – finished second in the Bluegrass 10K in Lexington on the Fourth of July! She was a mere 8 seconds behind winner Andrea Halasek-Richardson (a Georgetown native) at 39:13.
Last year, Betsy was third and typically finishes in the Top 5 of the BG10K. What makes this year’s feat even more remarkable is Betsy gave birth to Olivia Wren Laski on April 15th – Tax Day. Betsy and her husband have had some fun with that birthdate, as Ryan is a CPA!
Betsy, who starred at GC in the two sports she now coaches, was a Mid-South Conference Athlete of the Year as a senior in 2005. In addition to coaching, she’s a Public Administration Specialist at the Bluegrass Area Development District.
