Parker Fluhr, Staff Reporter

Recently, senior Ka’myya Haywood fully committed to further her athletic and academic career at the University of Tennessee on a running scholarship.

Haywood runs middle distance for Kenny’s track and field team, remaining a district champion in the 800m and the 400m. She will compete in regionals on Wednesday, May 3.

Leading up to this big decision, Haywood had many different offers from colleges around the US for track and field. Many different things however, factored into her final choice about her next four years.

On the topic of Tennessee, Haywood says, “I like the coaching staff, the team, their facilities and how they communicate with each other outside of track on a personal level.”
