This is Isaac Mulkey’s first year on the track team, and he has already earned himself a reputation. Isaac’s name was given by Coach Abner when asked about the best seniors on the team, and being spotlighted in your first year, even as a senior, is impressive.
Once football season finished in November, Mulkey stated track was “always the choice” coming into the new season. “It’s the perfect sport to prepare myself for others, mentally and physically,” Mulkey claimed. While it can be a physically straining sport, Mulkey stated, “The hardest part is having to critique myself, and fix the things that just don’t work”. The sport is as every part a mental preparation as it is a physical preparation.
However, Mulkey himself said, "I’m watching myself improve and get faster”. Improving his speed and endurance has been no small task.
Running the 4x4, and 400m, Mulkey notes that all his teammates are really friendly, and that everyone gets along well. While his fastest sprint is yet to be recorded, big things are expected on February 13th as track will be holding their Time Trials.
After high school, Mulkey intends to go to college for academics, and he does not think he will continue sporting track.
This is Abigail Miller’s sixth year on the track team, and it’s no wonder she’s so highly acclaimed. On and off the field, she proves her worth over and over again.
After her softball season in October, Miller moved her aim towards track, “conditioning” herself for the coming season. She revealed her secret to success when she advised, “Come to practice ready to work and with a positive mindset and attitude”. With her advanced experience, Miller believes mentality is more than half the battle, and simply trusting the process is the rest. “Taking time to take care of yourself,” she warns, “is an important part of progress.”
With her determination, comes the potential of going to the state track meet which she claims is one of the many honors of being on the track team. Not only for making it to a prestigious event, but being surrounded by her closest friends and teammates.
Running the 4x4, 400m, 4x1, and 200m, Miller comments that her teammates are practically family. She even commented, “I’m doing pretty well, I have my teammates behind me.” Her fastest run time has been recorded at 7.5 m/s. She completed the 400m in 1:01.25 and the 200m in 27.82.
After high school, Miller will not continue sporting track, and she will be studying business at UGA.
