This weeks A+ Athlete is Cassie Bisson of Durant High School.

Cassie is a 4 year Varsity member of the Durant cross country team where she has helped them bring home top six finishes at the state meet each of the last 3 years.

"Through cross country I've learned and mental strength," said Bisson. "Cross country is a hard sport and it takes a lot of mental strength, but also the main one is team work."

The distance runner also leaves the competition in the dust when it comes to school work. Cassie is number one in her class, a member of National Honor society, and has qualified to be a national merit Scholar. She is also the Durant FFA President where took 8th in the state Parliamentary procedure contest.

"Cassie is just a positive person," said Durant FFA teacher Jeremiah Adams. "You can guarantee that no matter what Cassie is doing, in any sport, activity, class room, in or out of school, it'll be the right thing."

And that's why Cassie Bisson is this Week's A+ Athlete
