“Mallary in the 4×100 her seventh grade year, that was the team that won state in ‘19,” Catholic trainer Jim Ivey mentioned. “She ran the second leg on that relay. Even though she’s only a sophomore, coming in as a 7th-grader and doing what she did, she had some great teammates.
“Mallary is also a soccer player. I was concerned about her coming in, because she played four games of soccer since last Wednesday (travel soccer), but she did PR in the 100 hurdles. She’s ran really well in the 300. She ran a nice third leg and she’s been really strong there all season.
“Carol has been a great leader, very attentive, very studeous, great attitude, as a coach you like to see that in all your athletes. She qualified last year.”
