RIDGEWOOD, N. J. -- Ridgewood High School officials are cheering on recent graduate and standout athlete Carleen Jeffers as one of three runners from New Jersey competing for Team USA in Scotland on Saturday, according to NJ.com.
Jeffers, a 2015 Ridgewood High School graduate, is part of a six-woman Junior Team running in the 4K race in the Great Edinburgh Cross Country International Challenge. Teams are coming from the U.S., Great Britian and other European countries to compete, according to NJ.com.
