Rushville Senior Profile- Nick Lawler

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 joined track in a search to have fun, and I most definitely found what I had been looking for. I will cherish my time in track dearly, and I was devastated I wouldn’t get to compete or practice with my team again. Looking toward the positive side, I was able to PR in my last meets ever and I joined a family I will never forget. All I have to say is thank you coach Marlatt for being an amazing leader and role model.

Coach’s comments: Nick is an athlete I wish I had the opportunity to coach more. We recruited him to come out for track as a junior without really knowing what event he might compete in because we knew he is the type of guy who is on successful teams. Nick is an elite student-athlete and took to track and field quickly. He settled in as a thrower and picked up both shot put and discus quickly. Both events improved dramatically for him during last season, and he eventually qualified for regionals in the discus (doubling the distance of his first meet throw). Nick’s indoor shot put this year beat his career best throw, and he is one of the guys I was most excited for this year. He is such a good example for other athletes to buy into an event, use the coaching and put in extra time and effort to improve. Nick will be successful at anything he puts his mind to and I look forward to hearing from him in the future in sports broadcasting.
