“Jones Point,” Watercolor Honors Coach Mike Hughes

Alexandria, VA – In December, ACHS Cross Country Awards Night celebrated the hard work of the school’s runners and coaches. Laurel Prucha Moran of Blue Room Studio (shown above) presented “Jones Point,” a watercolor of Head Cross Country Coach Mike Hughes at Jones Point, where the team practice was held. In the foreground is the ACHS coach of 29 years waiting for the students to get back from a run, surrounded by their backpacks and water bottles.

On the print’s packaging, Laurel wrote: “My middle child runs cross country for Alexandria City High School and I have spent many Saturday mornings chatting with Coach Hughes, taking in all the people exercising and biking and running under this architecturally beautiful bridge, waiting for the team to return from their run down the parkway.” Laurel Prucha Moran
