Dickson County High School distance runner Hannah Denton has committed to Belmont University. The Lady Cougar senior recently signed a letter of intent to be a part of the Lady Bruins track team. Denton is a two-time region champion in cross country and finished seventh in the state meet in 2011. She finished third in the state in the 3200-meter run as she prepares for her senior spring season. Plagued by injuries last year, Denton was 12th in the region cross country meet. Named to the All-Midstate team, Denton has been running distance races since sixth grade and has set course records at several meets. She plans to study accounting at Belmont, where the Lady Bruins finished second in the OVC last year.
