Katlin Summarell, daughter of Bill and Judie Summarell, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week.
She is a senior at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the Varsity girls Track & Field team. She competes in the hurdle and long jump for the team.
She is the 300-meter hurdle champion and qualified for the Great 8 Invitational and Williamson County Championship this year.
Summarell said that she has always loved running. When she started middle school, her mother encouraged her to take her passion and put it into practice on the track team. She said she has been doing it ever since.
When asked what inspires her to continue training and competing, she said that she just thinks about being her best and striving to get better and better.
One of her biggest role models is her mother, Judie. “She always works hard and does the best she can and pushes me to be my best as well,” she said.
After graduating from BGA this year, she plans to attend the University of Kentucky.
