Niwot High School star and Colorado standout Elise Cranny has committed to Stanford University. Cranny shortened her list of potential destinations to the University of Colorado, the University of Oregon, and Stanford before finally choosing Chris Miltenberg’s squad in Palo Alto.
The talented Cranny has had some coaching help from from a former Niwot assistant coach and top Boston Marathon finisher, Jason Hartmann.
“[He’s] been most influential to my success in cross country. He has always been there for me,”she told Milesplit last fall.
“It was a very difficult decision because I liked Colorado and the coaching staff there,” Cranny told Flotrack. “I also liked coach [Maurica] Powell at Oregon. However, Stanford was the best fit for me both athletically and academically. ”
“I chose Stanford because I believe that I can grow as a student, athlete, and person there.”
