Weekend Chit-chat with ... Burlington Central girls track and field athlete Katie Trupp
Burlington Central senior girls track and field athlete Katie Trupp won Big Northern Conference indoor titles in the high jump and pole vault last season. It’s not yet certain whether she’ll try to capture a third event title as a senior, although Trupp’s beginner’s luck in the long jump bodes well. Competing in a Saturday meet at DeKalb, Trupp cleared 15 feet, 7 inches on her first career long jump attempt, breaking the school record set in 2005. For the latest edition of the Weekend chit-chat, Kane County Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley touched base with Trupp – a Southern Illinois recruit – on her feat and outlook for the coming season. The following is an edited transcript:
Talk about the transition to indoors now that you’ve been doing offseason club [the Plainfield-based Jump High Athletic Club].
I guess my season never really ended. … I just kind of got the whole pole vault experience and got to go to a lot of USATF meets. I high jumped and pole vaulted. I worked on a lot of my technique stuff this summer and hopefully, my high school coaches can really help me to meet my goals of jumping higher this season.
