Athlete of the Week

KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: St. Charles East girls track's Jordan Shead

Why she was selected: Shead established new school records in the 200 meters (57.2) and 800 (2:14.4) this week

St. Charles East senior Jordan Shead sidestepped a lingering illness last week to establish new school records in the 200 and 800 meters. The Notre Dame-bound Shead, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, caught up with Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley about her accomplishments. The following is an edited transcript:

What went right for you to get the school record in the 200?

I think I've just been really focusing on getting out quicker and my blocks, and I think that definitely came together [Saturday] and made a big difference."
26.3 before, 25.5

Are you feeling livelier than usual after getting the new 800 record, as well?

Actually, not really. I was getting over some sickness last week. … I didn't really feel my best this week but I was just trying to fight though it and stay strong.

Does this outdoor season feel like it's passed especially quickly?

Definitely. It's just gone by so fast. .. I feel like once we get to outdoor season, it always just flies by.

What are your thoughts about running against [Aurora Central Catholic sophomore] Karina Liz in the 800 Friday [at the girls Kane County Meet]?

We'll see how that goes. Definitely going to be a battle.
