Athlete. Class of 1963.
She began an illustrious track and field career long before girls’ athletic programs were accepted by the general public and/or sponsored by high schools. She was second in the shotput in the National Junior Olympics as a high school junior. She won four National Senior AAU Titles in the discus and the 1968 gold medal at the Pan Am Games in Winnipeg and was member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic Games teams. “Winning the Pan Am gold was obviously a highlight, she said. “It’s hard not to say that competing in the Olympics wasn’t the best moment, but unfortunately the rains came that day and I didn’t throw my best.”
Later, Carol was a teacher and coach, including serving as an assistant coach in high school football.
