Rushville Senior Profile- Josie Corum

With the cancellation of the spring sports season, 12th grade spring sports athletes will not get to have their Senior Night.  We wanted to give those athletes a chance to share their Senior Night profiles typically read at such events.  While this can never replace Senior Night itself, at least we can help celebrate our local seniors by sharing their information with you.

Any spring sports senior who would like to have their Senior Night profile shared, please email it to and we will publish it under their spring sport.

Athlete’s comments- I had no intention of ever joining track until my sister, Kaitlyn Shook, and best friend, Isabella Runnebohm, tricked me into going to the first track practice. I have stuck with it ever since and it has been one of the best choices I have made. Through this program, I have learned to love running because it gives you a chance to better yourself not only physically but mentally. I was glad to be around such amazing people who always pushed me to be my best and who also knew how to have fun. I know my senior season has been cut short; however, I am happy I got to spend the remainder of it surrounded by an amazing track family. I encourage those who are able to compete next year to work hard and bring back that sectional trophy. I also want to thank all of my coaches for giving me the opportunity to compete and driving me to work hard to get where I am.

Coach’s comments: It has been my pleasure to be Josie’s coach in track and cross country for the last three years. She is incredibly mature which is important to have as a part of a high school team. Her work ethic is also elite. Josie is a strong student and athlete but also went straight from practice to her job every day. She easily gains the respect of everyone around her. Josie was a solid distance runner and certainly would have contributed in the 4×800, 1600 and 3200 this year. I know she is looking forward to going to IUPUI and I am very confident she will achieve her future goals.
