Athlete of the Week - Courtney Sockwell


Rockford Lutheran senior Courtney Sockwell is our OSF St. Anthony's Athlete of the Week. Sockwell won the 100 and 200 meter dashes at state as a junior, and hopes to do it again her senior year.

"I think I'm going to repeat what I did last year," Sockwell said. "That's the main goal."

Sockwell has run with a target on her back this season. She's been able to remain humble through all of her success thanks to a strong foundation.

"I see it from my parents," Sockwell said. "They're very humble with their accomplishments. I try to portray that when it comes to track."

Sockwell looks to finish her high school career with a couple of more gold medal performances on the big blue track at Eastern Illinois next month.
