About Angela Homan (Thomas)
Hailing from Spencerville High School, Angela dominated women’s distance running from 1998 through 2002. A four time State Champion and three time State Runner-up, Angela set standards that are still being chased over a decade later. In four years of cross country, Angela was only beaten twice as a freshman when she earned her first State Runner-up title, and as a junior when, after lead- ing the State Meet race through the three mile mark, she collapsed and then crawled across the line for 62nd. In Track, Angela made a regular appearance as a 1600M-3200M double in DIII racing to third place twice and earning one State-Runner-up title in the 1600M, and then coming back less than an hour later in the 3200M where she earned one State-Runner-up title and two State Championship medals. A Mideast Cross Country Champion (2001 18:13.06) and Footlocker National Finalist where she finished 18th, she closed out her high school career as it should be with a Midwest Meet of Champions title in the 3200 (2002-10:56.0). Continuing her career at Auburn, Angela went on to win three SEC titles in cross country as well as earn All-American honors at the National Championships those same three years (2003-2005), her highest finish coming in 9th place. She also ran for the USA at the World XC Championships in Switzerland. In track, Angela lit up the 5K and 10K races across the nation earning four more SEC titles and recognition four more times as an All-American while winning such prestigious races as the Penn Relays and setting Auburn school records which still stand. In 2006, Angela helped Auburn win the Out- door NCAA National Championship and was selected as one of nine finalists for the 2006 NCAA Woman of the Year. Angela earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duke in 2009 and currently resides in Wallace, North Carolina.
