Callie is a Senior who is a member of the Track team. I wanted to highlight her, along with other seniors on the Track Team, by asking her about her experiences and memories that she cherishes from her time with Woodford County. Here’s what she said!
Q- What is your name, and what events do you do for track?
A- “My name is Callie Gormley and my top events are the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, and long jump.”
Q- When did you start doing track?
A- “I have been up on the track since 5th grade, so I guess that would be 8 years now.”
Q- What is your favorite memory from your time on the track team?
A- “My favorite memory from track is probably any of the banquets that we always have at the end of each year. Although it’s sad having to say goodbye to the older teammates, we get to cover all of our achievements from that year and have a nice dinner together.”
Q- What is a lesson that you’ve learned from your time on the team?
A- “Something I have learned from my years on the track team is the importance of supporting others in their events as well as having people push you to do better as you compete. I have also learned that the only way to get better is by pushing yourself and giving it all the effort that you have.”
Q- What are some of your goals for this track season?
A- “My goal for this track season is to get below 16 seconds in the 100 hurdles, also to hopefully jump 17 ft in the long jump by the end of my season.”
Q- What are your post graduation plans?
A- “After graduation I will be continuing my track career at Centre College in Danville, KY.”
Callie has left a legacy for herself during her time on the Track team, holding the 4×200 outdoor record, as well as the 60m hurdle, long jump, and 55m indoor records! Callie also extends her abilities into the academic realm, with a 4.2 GPA and membership in the NHS and Beta Club. She has been named KHSAA Academic All-State for multiple years.
