Heights’ Karynne David – Salina Chamber “Winning Edge” Player Profile

Wichita Heights track standout Karynne David is all about the team even though she competes in several individual events for the track team. David will compete in the 100-meters, 200-meters, and both the 4×100 and 4×400 relays. She also plans to compete in the open 400 this year. 

“What I love most about my Heights teammates is their leadership and collective sense of humor. Our coaches always push us so we can be the best version of ourselves. Even when the practices are difficult, we know how to cheer each other up. Our chemistry as a team shows up on and off the track and really brings us together,” said David. 

During her time in track, David has made many great memories as an athlete at Heights.  

“My favorite memory as a student-athlete has to be making it to state while maintaining a 4.0 GPA all year,” said David. 

This season the goals she has set for herself are high, mirroring the team goals.

“My goals this season are just getting better than the season before. I strive to be the best person I can be, and I know there is always more I can do,” said David. 

Her plans after high school include pursuing a degree in college, while competing in track and field for the school.
