Western Branch alum and University of Kentucky star Faith Ross showed off a ton of speed this weekend down in Florida. She ran the opening leg on the victorious Wildcat 4x400m relay. The quartet of Ross, Camacho-Quinn, McLaughlin, and Clark not only won but ran a NCAA #1 and World #2 3:26.92.
Faith, a 2016 WB graduate, made a name for herself in high school as being one of the most versatile athletes ever. She was a multiple time state and national champion. She was also a part of multiple state and national record setting relay teams.
In her senior (HS) campaign Faith even came close to qualifying for indoor states in every running event. She was all-state in XC and was just a fraction of a second away from hitting all 10 state qualifying marks.
This past weekend her talent was on display with a quick 13.72 100mH, a strong 58.86 400mH, and of course a 52.6 400m split on the opening leg.
