Cassville girl joins strong track and field program

Cassville High School continues to be a hot bed for colleges recruiters.

Katie Sewell is the latest Cassville senior to ink a national letter of intent with a college.

Sewell will run track for the Central Missouri State University in Fayette next season.

"Katie has worked very hard to be successful in the long and triple jump," said Cassville track coach Jennifer Nichols. "Katie's ultimate goal was to continue at the college level."

Sewell joins Cassville seniors Glen Thomas, Marcus Weatherman, Ethan Lowery and Sydney Curnes, all of whom have been plucked by area colleges to fill their rosters this season.

At Cassville, she was a four-time letter winner and a member of the 400-meter relay team that set a school record with 51.40 in 2012.

Sewell qualified for the state meet in 2013 in the triple jump, and this season, she hopes to medal at state.

"Katie is a driven athlete who is constantly woking to improve her technique and distances," Nichols said.

Sewell is the daughter of Tammy Timmers and the late Bruce Sewell.
