BANNER ELK, N.C. – Lees-McRae College's Director of Cycling Tim Hall announced Wednesday the signing of Svetlana Mack (Silver Spring, Maryland) to join the Bobcats for the 2017-18 season. The signee is the first for the Bobcats for next fall.
"Svetlana will be a difference maker in the classroom and on the bike for us at Lees-Mcrae," said Hall. "She is a great addition to our road and cyclo-cross squads, and has the potential to become a solid mountain bike racer as well. She has a lot of experience and has achieved some outstanding results at junior nationals. We are thrilled to have her as a Bobcat through 2021!"
Hall also adds that Mack loves racing criteriums and is always a team player. She is also a mechanic and salesperson at her mom's bike shop, not to mention the volunteer portion for the youth team.
"I chose Lees McRae because of the beautiful campus, great cycling team, wildlife program and cycling minor," said Mack. "At the moment I am undecided on what I am going to be studying. I am going to race road and cyclo-cross and possibly mountain."
