Senior Kara Engle has been working towards her track and field goal since her freshman year of high school.

She has been working on her throws in discus and shot put for the past four years, and she recently set PRs of 86’8” in discus and 26 feet even in shot put.

For her work she has been named the BluePrint Athlete of the week.

Kara placed at many of the invitationals throughout the season, such as the Bellwood Invitational and West Central Coaches Meet.

“My goal for this season (was) to qualify for districts,” said Kara

Kara did in fact qualify for districts in the discus, and she finished in the top twenty five in 2A.

Though Kara is a senior and will going to college next year, she does not plan on continuing her track and field career at the collegiate level.

“My favorite thing about track and field is setting new personal records, because as you are improving your overall performance you are also helping the team. I am also so thankful for the girls track team coaching staff for all they have done for me,” she said.
