Erin Munley
In her premier season on the Staples cross country team Munley was almost hit by a car off the Post Road, an experience which frightened her but did not weaken her resolve or commitment. The close-call occurred mere weeks after Staples track star Caroline Koenig ’14 was struck by a car while on a team run.

Koenig helped quell Munley’s nerves and encouraged her to put the incident behind her while taking further precautions, such as constantly maintaining awareness of your surroundings, to stay safe in the future. Munley took the advice to heart, and in the spring went on to break a school record as the first runner in the Distance Medley Relay, a three lap relay which the team ran in approximately 3 minutes and 50 seconds.

“It was really rewarding because I was working so hard for it,” said Munley. “It was an honor to be a part of something so big for Staples as just a freshman.”

In her first year on the Inklings staff, Munley, who enjoys writing short stories for class, she said, is looking forward to a greater audience for her work and is eager to see her name in print for the first time.
