Salute To Seniors: Asia McMillon - American Heritage

The 2017-2018 school year has provided some great highlights in both cross country and track across the Sunshine State. In the coming weeks many of our seniors will head out to start their college careers both athletically and academically. We wanted to salute them one more time in this special feature and say thank you for your support over the years.

Today we salute American Heritage senior Asia McMillon.

What was your most memorable race/moment? 

Having my 2nd District Championship and PR in the 300 Hurdles on the Hallandale track.

Who would you consider your biggest competition over your four years?

Myself, each year I have tried to beat my previous performances.

What was your greatest accomplishment?

Being able to consistency drop my times in both the 300 hurdles & 100 hurdles this year.

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

I would stop worrying so much and just run my race.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

The most difficult obstacle to overcome was anxiety before the races. I did not want to let myself, my parent's, my teammates or my coaches down.

What will you miss the most?

I will miss the family atmosphere that I shared with all of teams. Track truly is a family experience, when you finish you have brothers and sisters you would have never imagined.

What advice you would give to younger athletes?

I would tell any younger athlete  to just run no matter how you feel, and don't overthink it. Believe in yourself and trust God to do what you can't.

What influence has your coach had with respect to your performance and overall life goals?

My coaches have contributed to the person I am today with the vibes they bring to practice and helping me to become mentally strong with the workouts given to me. 

What are your college plans?

I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at Florida State University, where my goal is to make a statement my freshman year.

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would like to thank God,  parents, my family, my friends, and every coach that has helped me get where I am today. Sacrifices were made to allow me to be where I am and I am thankful for each person who blessed me with their time, knowledge, and support along the way.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
