Delta’s Jenna Hallett to Run for Wittenberg University
Delta senior Jenna Hallett has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her track and cross-country career as well as her education at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. Choosing to compete at the next level was actually a recent decision she made this past fall. “It was really just this past season of cross-country that I decided I wanted to do it in college. I didn’t just want to study,” explained Jenna. “I didn’t want it to be over yet.”
While being involved with the Lady Tigers running programs, Jenna will be taking on the very challenging major of Biochemistry. However, she feels Wittenberg, about a two-hour drive from her home in Delta, is the place to achieve her lofty goals. “I actually have a lot of friends that go there and people there were really nice when I went there to visit. It was great,” she said. “It’s a small school, a Lutheran school, a Christian school. It was a good fit.”
