Kailey Littlefield, freshman

The race comes down to one last person. Everybody on the team has done their job, but it is not over yet. Morefield closes in on freshman Kailey Littlefield, and it is go time for her. Her leg could determine if they win or lose. Her spikes are tied tight, and her uniform proudly reads “Lovejoy” across it. She receives the baton and is off. She gives everything she has. 

“I got into running by being around the track my whole life,” Littlefield said. “I have been doing it since I was very little and I quickly became passionate about it.” 

Kailey and her team started off their success at the district meet in April. 

“Districts was our break out race this season,” Littlefield said. “We were all running at least two events so we were pretty tired by the time the 4×4 came around. I think what set us apart from every other team and helped us win was our bond with each other.” 

Littlefield plans to run the 4×400 meter relay next year, and each year moving forward until she graduates.

“Next year, we will hopefully get more experiences to run the 4×4,” Littlefield said. “We are all freshmen and sophomores, so I think we will not only get faster but gain more experience from this. I think we have a great shot to be state champions.”
