Winfield-Mt. Union’s Cassie Kingery signed her letter of intent Monday morning to attend William Penn next year and compete in track and field for the Statesmen.

“(William Penn) was the only school I really was interested in,” Kingery said. “I liked the campus, and everything was really close together, not too spread out.”

Cassie Kingery, who is the defending Class 1A 100-meter hurdles champion, is the only individual girls’ champion that W-MU has ever had. She was also part of the state placewinning shuttle hurdle relay team for W-MU.

But she wants to get even better, and that’s what she looks forward to about track at the next level.

“There will be more people around, so it will be easier to push myself even harder,” she said.

Kingery, who also played basketball at W-MU, isn’t sure yet what she wants to major in, but she knows that it will be something with athletics.
