LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A future Wildcat continues to garner national attention.
Sydney McLaughlin out of Union Catholic in New Jersey is a track phenom and she’s once again the Gatorade national athlete of the year.
A big honor for her no doubt. It’s her second straight female athlete of the year honor.
She’s been a champion at many levels and will represent the United States.
She’s thankful for her parents and coaches…and for what this award stands for in particular.
It means a little more than just being great on the track.
Hear from McLaughlin in the video.
