Town commissioners paused during their meeting Tuesday to recognize Malia Ellington, a 16-year-0ld Davidson resident who recently won both national and world triathlon titles. In a brief ceremony, Mayor John Woods cited her accomplishments and asked her to talk about how she got started running.
It was a local 5K race, sponsored by Davidson Lands Conservancy, she recalled. After that, she kept on running and took up triathlons a couple of years ago.
On Sept. 13, the Community School of Davidson junior won her age group (16-19) at the ITU Sprint World Championships in Hyde Park, London. That victory came a month after she won not only her age group, but the overall women’s title at the 2013 Sprint National Triathlon Championship in Milwaukee.
Ellington is the daughter of Brandon and Nancy Ellington and has two siblings, Hannah, 14, and Brandon, 13.

Thanks to a team effort by its sales staff, the Davidson College Bookstore has won a national recycling contest put on by apparel maker Champion. The project, affectionately known as “Bottle Man,” was made of about 30 plastic bottles taped together.
Champion ran the contest among college bookstores to promote its Eco Fleece clothing line. Each fleece item, such as a Davidson hoodie or pair of sweatpants, recycles the equivalent of about one 20-ounce plastic bottle.
“Bottle Man,” which greeted customers for about two weeks, won $200 in the “Out of the Box” division of the contest.
The bookstore also has moved its children’s section upstairs, and has expanded the merchandise choices.

About 150 people stood straight, then stretched their arms skyward during a giant yoga class on the Village Green Saturday afternoon. It was the second annual Yoga on the Green, organized by Cornelius yoga studio The Bindu. The event included a free hourlong yoga lesson and live music by Billy Jones & The Pocket.
This year’s event gathered $10 donations from most participants and raised a total of $750 for Davidson Farmer’s Market’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Donations will be used for program incentives, administrative costs, outreach and advertising needed to restart this program, to increase access to fresh, healthy, local food for everyone in our community.
The Bindu is at 11138-C Treynorth Drive, off NC 115, Cornelius, founded by Kelley Gardner, a certified Anusara Yoga teacher. She led Saturday’s session on the green.
Find out more about the event on Facebook.
