Princeton’s Adam Casey recently signed a national letter of intent to run cross country and track at Barton College.
Casey is a standout cross country and distance runner for the Bulldogs. He has a personal best of 5:06 in the 1600m, an 11:11 in the 3200m, and a time of 18:17.20 in the 5000m.
“I am super excited to have the opportunity to continue running in college, and it has been so great seeing all the hard work pay off,” Casey said
Casey is just as strong in the classroom, he has a weighted GPA of 4.40, and he plans to major in business administration at Barton.
“In the years that I have both instructed and coached Adam, he has always been a leader. Adam is a hard worker who is very goal-oriented and strives for excellence,” Princeton cross country coach Glenna Eckenrod said. “He pushes himself and those around him in a very positive way. Adam has a bright future ahead of him.”
The son of Daniel and Judy Casey, Adam Casey has worked hard to achieve his dreams. He will practice in and out of season, and Casey knows what he needs to improve on to make himself a better runner.
Princeton track and field coach Michael Price added that Casey is a rare type of student-athlete who only comes through once or twice in a coach’s career.
“I never go by the track in the afternoons that I do not see his truck. He is always running to better himself,” Price said. “I’m so thankful his hard work has allowed him to compete at the next level.”
