Mikayla joined the Highlands track and field program her sophomore year when she transferred to Highlands. Her dedication and persistence led her to break both the shot put and discus records at Highlands. Her indoor weight throw qualified her to the New Balance Indoor meet this winter, where she placed in the top 30. Her 45’10’’ weight throw is the farthest in KY history. She has proven to be one of the best throwers in Kentucky state history in the shot and disc as well.

“I am very excited for Mikayla. She has motivated our throwers and led by example with her dedication to the sport and determination to improve,” said Brian Alessandro, Highlands High School head cross country and girls’ track and field coach. “Her success is due to her drive, and I am confident she will be successful in whatever she chooses to do in life. I am honored to have such an athlete in our record books.”
