BETTER KNOW CHRISTINA KING

Christina King comes to us from Wayne State where she was a 2 time All American for 2011.  She recorded a 6th (55.47) in the Indoor 400 meters at this month’s Indoor Nationals.  She was also 16th at the 2010 Outdoor National Championships (55.23),  has a pr of 24.93 in the 200, and 2:22 for the 800.  Christina graduates with a History Education major and Phys. Ed minor.  A soccer standout at Millard West (’06 grad), Christina didn’t run her first track meet until April of 2007, a 59.8 400 meters from a standing start.  Enough to impress coach Brink and earn a spot on the team.  She continued to play soccer for 3 years at Wayne before her 5th and final concussion from that sport led to retiring and focusing strictly on track and field.  Christina continues a long line of Wayne St. athletes including James McGown and Matt Schneider, with many more in the wings!
