Athlete of the Month: Jonah Shepard

Evan Cook 

Senior Jonah Shepard, a valuable asset to the West Jessamine Track and Field team, has been running track for 7 years. As one of the many sprinters on the team, he runs the 100m dash, the 200m dash, the 4x100m relay, and the 4x200m relay. In his favorite event, the 200m, he recently broke the school record with a stunning 23.62 second PR! In the 100m, he had an 11.83sec PR. When asked why he runs, he responded ”I run because it has always been what I love to do”. He also loves the competition of it, saying that he is very competitive, and that running suits him very well in that case. “I want to go to Asbury University,” he says, “and I would [love] to continue running in college if I have time.”
