Male Student Athlete of the Month: Keagan White

Jemimah Jatau

Keagan White, a senior, is the most impressive Athlete of the Month. Keagan White sets high expectations for himself; he happens to be an outstanding student and a great runner. Keagan will be signing to Kentucky Wesleyan University, where he has a full ride to run cross country and track.

Unfortunately, Keagan’s running career got off to a rough start his freshman year, but saying he has improved is an understatement. As of his last race, he was 8 minutes and 17 seconds faster than his first race, which is a really big accomplishment.

He has always found a reason to push harder and he enjoys getting competitive and seeing the improvement and success. “It’s like, every race I have the opportunity to do better,” White says. “It is such a honor to lead my team to State as a senior.” His advice for student athletes is to “be passionate about your sport”. If he could go back in time, he would play cross country all over again. We are proud of you Keagan–way to run like a Colt!
