Micayla Rennick stood at the line at Tucker Stadium on a sweltering May afternoon, aiming to win yet more Ohio Valley Conference gold. She already had claimed a few of those earlier in the conference outdoor meet over the course of the weekend, but her day was far from over.
If you watched her from the stands or from the infield, it appeared as if she was staring off into the distance – a million miles from where she was currently standing. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Rennick stood at the line, focused on the moment and strategies racing through her mind. When would be the moment to make her move? What kind of pace did she need to start with? What did she need to do to help the team?
By the time the OVC championship concluded, Rennick was responsible for 36 of Tennessee Tech’s 151 points in the meet, winning the 10K and the 1,500m, while finishing second in the 800m and the 5K, earning her spot as the Female Athlete of the Championship for the second time in a single academic year. She also won the award at the OVC indoor meet, as well as the regular-season female athlete of the year honors in both.
