What is your Greatest Achievement?
1St ever Female or Male state qualifier form my high school in Cross Country
How has participating in high school athletics benefited you?
I can honestly say that this sport has caused me to grow up. Growing up means that when times get tough, I restlessly fight through it instead in the past where I would feel bad for myself, give up or beg for sympathy from others.
What made you decide to play the sport for which you were named the Penn Station Athlete of the Season?
I played soccer all my life but never really found the same passion for soccer as I did for running. Once I ran my first community 5K. I knew that is was sport that was worth all my time and energy
Quote from Athletic Director:
Caitlyn is an excellent representative of HSHS. She is the leader in the classroom, on the track and off the field. She is the true embodiment of student athlete.
