Samuel Mitchell of Bullitt Central Senior Sendoff

Samuel Mitchell

Bullitt Central 

What was your most memorable meet and why?

My most memorable meet was Run for the Gold because it is under the lights at night and is the first race of the season

Where did you face your biggest competition?

My biggest competition is always at regionals because we have St. X, Male, and DuPont Manual in our region. 

Out of all of your high school accomplishments which stands out the most and why?

Going to state my junior year because it was the first time in about 20 years that our school had been to state.

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

I would've taken summer practices more seriously so I didn't have to work harder to catch up throughout the season.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

My biggest obstacle was overcoming knee problems my senior year.

What will you miss the most?

I'm going to miss putting in work every day with my brothers and all of the times we hung out at XC meets.

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?

Every workout matters and will prepare you for the end of the season.

What are your post-high school or college plans?

I plan on studying Business Management at the University of Kentucky 

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would like to say thanks to Coach Tallent who was my coach from Freshman to Junior year, and to my brother Isaac who coached us my Senior year.
