A&M Legacy: 2 More All-Americans

The latest addition to the list of Central A&M High School alumni becoming Collegiate All-Americans is Genny Rose Stringer. Meanwhile, former IHSA Class A State Champion teammate Madison Renfro earned her second All-American honor.

Genny Rose Stringer (freshman) added five points to the UW-Whitewater total, pushed them up into 3rd place in the nation at the NCAA D-III National Track Championships, recently, and earned All-American honors for herself in the discus.

Stringer’s throw was a career best, 152 feet, 3 inches. Stringer won a state championship in the discus for Central A&M and also earned 3rd place at state in discus, while in high school.
