Greenfield's Jocelyn Sosa wants to compete in Australia

Greenfield's cross country star Jocelyn Sosa has been invited to compete in Australia with the Down Under Sports Organization. In the wake of a great season, Jocelyn and her parents believe this is a good opportunity for the studious athlete to polish her running skills.

"I was doing very well since the beginning, I was getting first place a lot," said Jocelyn, a junior at Greenfield High School. She finished the season in 18th place out of 200 runners, and overall, she had a great year which she wants to cap with a trip in the summer.

 Jocelyn needs $5,000 for her trip, and she's hoping community members will help her cover her costs. She'll be having car washes, bake sales, everything that low-income students do these days to raise money. Her mother Alba Sosa asked me if I could do a write up for her in hopes that people donate to her cause. Sure, I said. So here it is.

One of these days, Jocelyn may open up a GoFund me or another social media donation campaign. In the meantime, you can send your donations addressed to Jocelyn Sosa, PO Box 1592, Greenfield CA 93927. Or you can donate directly to the Down Under Sports here. It's not tax deductible, unfortunately.
