Jenny Rush Invitational
October 2, 1993

The Jennifer Rush Memorial Invitational is in memory of the first girl to run
 cross country at Rockville High School. The daughter of a school counselor,
 Jennifer Rush died at the end of cross country season - November of 1977 - a few
 days after running in extremely cold weather in the regional meet.

"She had always had anemia, but it had never been discoverred," Rockville's
 longtime Cross Country Coach Bob Stack said.

"They thought she had pneumonia and rushed her to the hospital. She died within
 a week. She didn't have enough immunities to fight the infection and the anemia at the same time."
