NORWICH – Norwich will have one female representative at this year’s New York State Outdoor Track and Field meet, sophomore Emily Shattuck will be competing in the long jump for the Tornado.

Shattuck unlike, her counterparts of Thomas Reilly and Zack Race, has quite a few years under her belt when it comes to the sport despite her young age. Shattuck began track as a seventh grader and has quickly progressed to an elite level. In just eighth grade she made her first trip to the state tournament in outdoor, while also going to nationals for freshman jumps that very same year.

Now some two tears later, Shattuck will be heading back to the big stage, where she has her sights set on the higher prize, medaling in her event and potentially breaking the school record along the way.
