Sammy Rhodes, a junior from Triway High School, recently joined us for our seventh installment of #SportsDontDie presented by Walnut Creek Cheese.
Rhodes and Triway’s track & field coaching staff (head coaches Kelly Cruise and Mark Shutler) gave us access to capture her workout in the Titan’s weight room and stadium complex. Sammy, born with spina bifida, is a seated track & field athlete who earned All-Ohio honors from the OATCCC for her accomplishments in multiple events at the 2016 OHSAA State Track & Field Championships.
Sammy is pushing herself to achieve greater goals at the 2017 state meet where she has qualified to compete this weekend in the 100-meter, 400-meter, 800-meter and Shot Put.
Good luck Sammy, thank you for letting us come along for the ride. Push fast and throw far!
