The Randolph College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our WildCat of the Week. The 13th student-athlete selected this year is men's track and field athlete Anthony Quinn.
Quinn had one of his top meets ever last week at the Liberty Kickoff. He was the top Division III performer in the 60 meter hurdles and was second among Division III sprinters in the 200 meter dash. Quinn finished those races in time of 8.64 and 23.55 respectively. He also combined with Alex Clem, Karim Frazier, and Brian Higgins to finish second-overall in teh 4x400 meter relay in a time of 3:39.63. All three times were school records.
You set two school records and helped the relay team set another in the first meet of the season. How did the team perform so well (eight records and one tied) in such an early meet and how will it help down the road?
With an early start on pre-season and some great first years, we have all been able to push each other to do better in both practice and our meet. Coach Cooper has had a strong influence on all of us and has made each individual on the team work harder. We are taking this one meet at a time and hoping to break even more school records down the road.
What is your favorite thing about Randolph College?
My favorite thing about Randolph is the people you meet here and how welcoming everyone is at Randolph.
How has being a student-athlete affected you?
Being a student-athlete has always kept me on track with both my school work and athletics and taught me never to quit. Balancing both has been a challenge these past years but I know it will pay off in the long run.
What is your favorite thing about Randolph College track and field?
My favorite thing about track is without a doubt running hurdles and having a close group of friends. This team is a strong family and we hope to keep this family growing and continually improving.
