Newton standout Anaya Arnold will continue her running career at Fort Valley State University.

Arnold, who graduated this year from the Newton College and Career Academy, recently signed with Fort Valley after a standout high school career that included qualifying for the state finals in the 800- and 1,600-meter run in track and field the past three years. She holds the school record in the 800 (2 minutes, 20.98 seconds) and the 1,600 relay (3:59.44).

She also was Newton’s lone state cross country qualifier last fall.
