For all of her hard work, both in school and on the courses and track, Quick has been named a Tom Lane State Farm Female Athlete of the Month for CM.
Quick had a very successful season last year in track and during an interview conducted last spring, Quick was very excited about the upcoming cross country season.
"Oh, yeah, I'm excited for next cross country and next track season," Quick said. "Next year, maybe that'll be a final goal, going to state and in track, I want to go faster in the mile."
Quick very much loves distance running, having competed in the two sports for many years. Much more importantly, she's a top student at CM, consistently making the school's honor roll.
"She's the example of a student-athlete," said Eagles cross country and track coach Jake Peal. "She excels both in the classroom and on the courses. She's going to have a strong senior campaign."
Quick will be working hard to attain her cross country and track goals, and will also be a very strong student as well as she looks towards her future.
Congratulations to Quick for a Tom Lane State Farm Insurance Female Athlete of the Month honor for the Eagles.
