From the coach: I nominated Emily Jones because she brings such a positive energy to the gym each and every day. She is a great leader, both in her words and her actions. She’s a really hard worker and is great at helping her teammates when they’re in need of a smile.
Favorite thing about sports: Being part of a team, making memories, and accomplishing my athletic goals.
Person who has influenced you: My parents, teammates, gymnastics coach Wendy Rooney, and my first track coach Jason Knighton-Johnson.
How do you prepare for a game or meet?: I listen to music, spend time with my team, and get in the right mind space for a competition.
Highlight of athletic career: Beating my personal best triple jump mark four times in the 2019 sections track and field meet and becoming the fourth-best female triple jumper in CIHS history.
Future goals: Graduate high school, go to college and become a neonatal nurse, and hopefully do track in college.
