Karen Dorantes is a graduate of Lane Tech HS in Chicago where she competed in track and cross country.
Karen is currently a sophomore at Malcolm X College. You will find her covering meets in the Chicagoland area.
Karen wanted to be a Milesplit intern because she fell in love with the sport early on in high school, after taking a year off due to injuries she believes this internship is a good opportunity to jump back into the sport again. She looks forward to being in a competitive atmosphere again while also being able to cover the meets.
