A Manitowoc teenager is an inspiring example of ‘turning your life around through athletics and hard work in the classroom.’   Korshaun Walcott recently completed his junior season in Track & Field where he earned a berth at State in the 100-meter dash.  This was after taking his sophomore year off from athletics at Lincoln High School.

Walcott says he LOVES running & racing and he attributes much of his success to his coaches and his teammates for always pushing him to do his best.  Getting to State was his biggest goal.  Korshaun credits his girlfriend for literally getting him back-on-track.

Korshaun recorded a personal best in the 100 at La Crosse and hopes to cut that time down to under 11-seconds next year.  His performance on the track helped him focus in class as well.

His coach for the Ships, Ryan Schroeder says:

Korshaun also thanked his Foster parents for believing in him and he looks forward to the future.

Walcott was brutally honest about his outlook if he hadn’t made the necessary changes in his life.

During our interview, Korshaun Walcott had two all-conference 3rd team certificates in front of him for finishes in the 100 and 200-meter dash at the FRCC meet.
