Carson Collinsworth is a senior on the cross country team. He made sure to contribute and help the team wherever he could. When people on the team were contact traced this year, he and a few other members of the team stepped up so that the team could continue on. They were even able to win county and conference this year. The bond that the team has created is one that Carson feels will never break.


“It was definitely a change compared to my first years of cross country,” Collinsworth said. “Usually camps are packed together and you get to meet some of the runners from different schools, but this year that wasn’t the case. You were more on an island, and sometimes we’d sit on the bus until twenty minutes before the race started.”


After high school, Carson plans to attend Indiana University to major in sports management and minor in radio and TV media. Before he starts college, he wants to advise younger students to “enjoy these four years, because it goes by a lot faster than you think.”
