Tonya has been mountain biking for just over five years - but has fully immersed herself in cycling. Riding road, mountain and most recently cyclocross - Tonya enjoys cycling for the friendships and being outdoors. She loves giving back to the cycling community as a youth coach and draws her inspiration from the energy that the student athletes bring to the Crushers!
Team Director and Asst Head Coach
Marissa has been mountain biking for over 20 years - but she and her family have recently become "all-in" cyclists. Everyone in the family rides - mountain, cyclocross, unicycle or just a casual ride around the neighborhood. Marissa is our "organizer-in-chief" - making sure our practices get scheduled, students and parents are informed, and the paperwork gets done. She is also our head "cheerleader" - always cheering on every student athlete as they cross the finish line!
Thank you for your interest in the Carolina Crushers Mountain Biking Team.
In support of the expansion of the North Carolina Interscholastic Cycling League (NCICL) and the NICA mission of interscholastic cycling, the Carolina Crushers is changing its service area.
We will now serve students enrolled in Orange County schools and those students who are districted to a CHCCS school, but attend elsewhere, including homeschooled students.
Additional teams exist or are in the process of being established to serve Chatham County as well as all CHCCS middle and high schools. For more information about these teams, see our contact list of other teams.
Please be patient as we update our website to reflect this change. Our FAQ has been updated with the same information.
