Wildcats News · Senior Spotlight: Ellie Bush

{We are taking this opportunity to spotlight our MVHS spring sport seniors!  Since their seasons may be cut short at best, we wanted to to share their stories with our community and lift them up in these most trying times.  It may be “just sports,” but behind all of that are some outstanding young people who simply hope to wear the maroon & gray alongside their teammates one more time!  All spring sport seniors who have signed up via FinalForms have been sent a google form along with a request for a spotlight picture.  As these are received, they will be shared with you.  Pass it on and let’s see if we can get 100% participation on this from the MVHS Class of 2020! #ALLIN  #WEAREMV  #CLASSOF2020}

Spring Senior Spotlight:  Ellie Bush

Name:  Ellie Bush

Nickname:  EB

Spring Sport:  Track & Field

Who introduced you to the sport?  My sister (Savannah Snodgrass); 8 or 9 years old

Pregame Rituals/Superstitions:  Before I get into blocks, I always make sure I am the last one down. This usually consists of doing many jumps in the air and various stretches before getting into the blocks. Also, my 4×100 team always prays with the baton before big meets. We all go around in a circle and say our piece. Altogether, it usually calms us down before the big race.

Favorite Spring Sport Memory:  My sophomore year we had a freshman/sophomore meet where underclassmen compete. That meet I ran the 100m dash, which I hadn’t been running. After prelims, I was ranked dead last. I ended up winning the 100m dash in the worst lane (lane 8).

Least Favorite:   Not making it to regionals my junior year.
