Senior Reagan Casey Signs To Run Track and Cross-Country at the University of Memphis Next Fall
As a scholar, athlete and leader, Reagan Casey performed at very high levels during all four years of high school. As a Freshman, Reagan was a star athlete on the track team at an all-girls school in Memphis, TN. She competed in the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes earning her a special recognition as “Varsity Athlete -Freshman of the Year”. Reagan also competed in numerous Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) club sports competitions, posting national championship qualifying times in the 100, 200 and 400 meter events. Her performance and leadership, while on these club teams and during the 2016 AAU national championship race, earned her a designation as team captain for the Memphis Jets AAU club team during the 2017 season.
After transferring to Briarcrest High School in the beginning of her junior year, Reagan seized upon an opportunity to run in her first cross-country meet. She immediately made an impact, helping the Briarcrest Girl’s Cross-Country Team win the 2017 Regional Cross-Country Championship. Her contributions also resulted in her team qualifying for both the 2017 and 2018 State Championships. During the 2018 track season, Reagan ran in the 400, 800, 4X400, 4X200 and 4X800 meter events which greatly enhanced the overall competitiveness of Briarcrest during the entire season. Her performance in the 4X800 meter relays significantly contributed to a team victory in the 2018 Regional Championship which resulted in another trip to the state championship meet.
Reagan Casey’s experience and success in a variety of running events, along with her leadership, caught the eyes of several college recruiters and the United States Army. She has chosen to sign her commitment letter to compete as an NCAA Division I athlete with the track and cross-country team at University of Memphis.
Reagan plans to major in Health Studies with a Healthcare Leadership Concentration, and she plans to eventually serve her country as an officer in the medical branch of the United States Army.
