Rushville Senior Profile- Morgan Adkins

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 would like to thank my coaches for the hard work and determination you have put into our program to make us as successful as we have been the past four years. Thank you to my parents for all the support, all the traveling to come and cheer me on and the countless hours you sat through not the greatest weather conditions to watch me run. Without you, my success would not be possible. To my fellow seniors, although this season did not go as planned and we will not get to lace up our spikes one last time or put on our jerseys once more, those memories and successes we had throughout the last four years are something special. Without you guys being part of the track team, it wouldn’t be the same. I wish this season would have turned out better, but I wish you all luck in the future and all your successes. To the underclassman, don’t take anything for granted. It’s a privilege to put on a Rushville jersey and compete as a Rushville Lion. It’s not something everyone gets to do. I never thought my last time putting on a Rushville uniform would’ve been at the end of cross country season. If I had known that was my last time, I would’ve lived in that moment a little harder and let it all sink in. But unfortunately, that was not what happened. My advice for you guys is to live in the moment. You never know where life is going to take you or what may happen. As you go through your high school career, live as if it is the last time you are going to do something. Hang around all your classmates and become friends with everyone. It’s the friends and people you win championships with that are some of the best memories. So work hard and don’t complain about having to do a hard workout. It’s those workouts that win championships. So before you complain about having to go to practice or not wanting to run, think of all the seniors who got that taken away from them. You may not want to run, but run for those seniors who couldn’t one last time.

Coach’s comments- Morgan has demonstrated tremendous commitment, passion and grit during her four-year running career at RCHS. It has been a pleasure to be her coach in both track and cross country because she cares so much about the sport and her teammates. She is one of the toughest athletes I have ever coached. Morgan fought through injuries, surgery and pain to continue competing in both sports because of how much she cared. She was an effective leader and key contributor to multiple championship teams despite the adversity she faced daily in practice. I am incredibly proud of her and look forward to her future at Ball State.
