Spectrum Athlete of the Week: Keegan Collins, Greenwich
Keegan Collins started track and field at Greenwich during the indoor season as a seventh grader for something to do. Six years later, she is the best thrower in Section 2 and one of the best in the state.
She broke her own school record this past season by nearly two feet in the 20-pound weight throw, which landed our Spectrum Athlete of the Week the state and federation championships.
The UAlbany-bound senior also excels at the sport of powerlifting outside of school. In fact, she set a world record in her age and weight class in the bench press, lifting 162.5 pounds at a meet in December.
