Senior Sendoff: Emma Cape - Whiteburg Christian Academy


Name: Emma Cape

High School: Whitesburg Christian Academy

What was your most memorable meet and why?
At the State meet my sophomore year high jump was the only event going on so my whole team was watching me jump. I broke the state record and my whole team rushed the field to hug me.

Where did you face your biggest competition?
At the State meet my sophomore year I had an intense jump off in high jump

Out of all of your high school accomplishments, which stands out the most and why?
My first year at state when I was a 7th grader stands out the most to me. I only did high jump and I got 8th place which got one point for the team. That was what started the next 5 years of me doing track and now I am high jumping in college.

If you could do it all over again, what would you change about your running career in high school?
I wish I would've had time to watch other people's events at meets. When you are doing 4 events it's hard to find time to watch other events

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome during your HS Track career?
We got a new coach my senior year and it was hard to adjust to a new person leading the team

What will you miss the most?
My teammates

Do you have any advice for younger athletes?
Have fun!

What are your post-high school or college plans? Who would you like to say thank you to?
I will be high jumping at Jacksonville state. I want to say thank you to my family for supporting me, my coaches for making me better, and my teammates for being there when I need them.
