Athlete of the Week: Mackenzie Michael

Mackenzie Michael


How long have you been running track?

I have been running track since I was in seventh grade.

What has been your biggest accomplishment from this season so far?

My biggest accomplishment so far this season was probably running the 1,500, even though I didn’t win it. For me it was a step in the right direction and making big improvements to get better in the 1,500.

What are some personal goals?

Some of my personal goals would be to win the 800 at Drake Relays and State, to win the 4×4 and 4×8 at State and Drake, and to qualify for the open 1,500 at Drake.

What are some team goals?

The team goals would be just like my personal goals, to win the 4×4 and the 4×8 at state and Drake.

What is your best memory from this or previous seasons?

The best memories I’ve had in my previous years was being with my teammates at the Drake Relays and State because we had a really good time together and we got to bond. Also winning State in the 800 was big for me too because I never knew I had it in me, but in that one moment I knew I had a shot and took the opportunity to try and win it and ended up achieving that goal.
