Katelyn Lehnen is ready to tackle the superstar realm in track and field
It was a short but sweet indoor season punctuated with a win at the 3A Illinois Top Times in the 60m (7.62) over a stellar field. It was the second-fastest time in the state.
Perhaps a shade over or under five-foot in stature, Lehnen also plays varsity basketball during the winter. So it was quite amazing to see her come out in her first competition of the season and drop fire. On February 25, at Olivet Nazarene University
it was the 2023 sprint attack coming out party for Lehnen won the 60m (7.51) and ran a leg on the winning 4x200 relay. She has dropped 25.35 in the 200m which is among the best in the state.
The defending 3A 200m champion will be heading off to Boston for the upcoming New Balance Nationals Indoors to test her mettle to the max. It is easy to see that the future is very bright for Katelyn Lehnen!
