Sun Prairie's Van Wie aiming for special senior season

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Over the past couple years, Sun Prairie's McKensey Van Wie has established herself as one of the premier distance runners in the state. The senior has already committed to running at Wisconsin next year.

"I'm happy that my decision is made about going to UW though. I'm really happy that it's over with, and I can just kind of relax now." 

That decision has freed Van Wie to focus on her final high school season on the track. She currently ranks in the top ten in the state with her top times in the 1,600 meters and the 3,200 meters. Van Wie has some lofty goals for the remainder of the season. She's hoping to break Sun Prairie's school record in the 3,200 meters while also pushing for a state championship.

"I really want to do pretty well at state. I want to get up high on that podium."
