Emerson Deverell : Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS)
Emerson Deverell has been running competitively for five years. First competing in middle distance running, she now competes in cross country, road, mountain, and track events with her biggest achievement to date being winning the national U20 road running title in 2017 and the national mountain U20 title in 2016. Other highlights include being selected to represent New Zealand at the Australian Cross Country Champs and the ISF World Schools Cross country Championships in Hungary. Emerson was also selected to race at the World Mountain Running Championships in Bulgaria 2016 and in Italy in 2017.
