We couldn’t be more proud of Casey Greenwalt and her recent athletic accomplishments.  She signed a letter of intent to run for UNCA next year.  We look forward to seeing her break records next year!!
10380413_10203822237055500_3703922170410326230_oLooking back on her senior year at TC Roberson, she recounted some of her PR’s.  59.1 for the 400m, 2:13.01 for the 800m, 5:00.8 for the 1600m and 2:56.27 for the 1000m (at one time she was ranked 6th in the nation for the 1000m). Casey recalls, “My favorite memories of this season would definitely have to be breaking the school record in the 4x800m early on in the season (which placed us as US#4 at the time), breaking the school record in the 800m and indoor 1000m; and although it was scary, running at the Armory in NYC for Nationals! This was definitely the most memorable year because my teammates and I were so close and illustrated tons of camaraderie, I definitely think that helped us have such a strong (and close!) finish this year at Cross Country state championships, as well as our track championships.”
