SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE – Evelyn Morales

At a school that has excelled in producing multi-sport athletes, Evelyn Morales will leave University Heights Academy as a standout in two different ones. But first, she’s going to make a run at a pair of UHA track and field records.

Morales was a part of three-straight district championship teams and two others that finished as region runner-up.  In her high school career, UHA compiled a 76-54 record.

As a senior, she led the Lady Blazers in kills (187) and digs (196), and was second in blocks with 22.  She was able to parlay her high school numbers into a scholarship to Kentucky Christian University.

However, there’s a chance she may be a multi-sport athlete in college too if she decides to run for the track and field team.

Morales already owns the UHA school record in the high jump after clearing 5-feet, 2-inches at the 2019 region meet.

She’s less than two seconds away from setting two more records in the 400-meter run and the 100-meter hurdles.

Morales has another five weeks and several big meets coming up to etch her name into the record book two more times.
