Chanelle Price won a world championship in the 800 meters earlier this week, and her friends and family in Easton welcomed her home in style Thursday.

When Easton's Chanelle Price was running for the Rovers a few years ago, she was ing things we'd never seen a high school runner do. That's why she was the national track and field athlete of the year as a senior. Now she's doing things we've never seen her do on an international stage. Earlier this week, Price became a World Champion in Poland, and today, her friends and family in Easton welcomed her home in style.  Price was greeted with a surprise gathering at Easton High School, a gathering that included her family and former coaches at the high school. Price has had a few days to let it sink in that she's a world champion, and yet she's still adjusting to what it all means.
