Mary Cain's record-breaking, championship-winning indoor track season brought her national recognition. Now she's receiving more recognition in her home area, too.
The 16-year-old Bronxville High junior was set to be on the receiving end of a special award presentation Tuesday night during the Eastchester Town Board meeting at the Bronxville Public Library.
Her dad, Charlie Cain, said he had received word that county executive Rob Astorino will also be recognizing her during his state of the county address at the county courthouse in White Plains April 23, and that Mary will attend that event as well.
"It's very nice to see that people locally are watching her and enjoying her success as much as we are," Charlie Cain said.
During the season, she set one or more national records in her first four races, then closed by winning a senior-level national title, taking the women's mile at the USA indoor championships last month in New Mexico.
