Morgan's Memoir

Ball Isn’t Life

November 7, 2019 · No Comments

He is now a sophomore track star after coming to college on a basketball scholarship.

Mr. Carney grew up revolving around basketball. He would religiously watch basketball and would always be part of camps and travel team basketball until his high school career started. 

Originally, Mr. Carney had the goal of becoming a college basketball star. His father knew the track coach and he was recruited to the track team his freshman year. 

Once his season on the court was over, Mr. Carney made the transition to the track. Although he didn’t have the base that the other members had, he quickly became a standout athlete. 

After participating in multiple events Mr. Carney found a niche for the 800 where he and others made it to both indoor and outdoor nationals in the 4×800 relay. 

After his successful freshman year, Mr. Carney made one of the toughest decisions of his life to quit his dream of becoming a basketball star and live his reality as a track star instead.
