After running for two years in the Valley of the Sun, the Seminole Tribe’s Anna Harmon is now lacing up her sneakers on an island for a NCAA Division I cross country program.

Harmon starred at Mesa Community College in the Phoenix area as a freshman and sophomore on the women’s cross country team. Last year, she led Mesa to a national runner-up finish thanks in part to her finishing second overall.

This summer Harmon joined the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi team. The school is located on a tiny island in Corpus Christi and refers to itself as the ”Island University.” It is on the western edge of the Gulf of Mexico, about 150 miles north of Mexico’s border.

The team has had two meets so far this year; one hosted by Rice University in Houston and the other hosted by the University of Minnesota. Harmon did not race in either meet.

The team’s remaining schedule includes meets in October at Texas A&M’s main campus in College Station and at the Southland Conference championships in Arkansas.

Harmon is the daughter of tribal member Donna Harmon and Edward Harmon.
