Catarra Burroughs flat out wins when she is on the track and in the classroom. It is the reason why she is captain of the Wilson track team.

Catarra Burroughs doesn’t have to worry about eligibility issues. The Wilson senior has a 4.2 GPA and has taken AP and IB courses throughout high school. She has a way with words.

Catarra is poetry in motion on the track. She runs both indoor and outdoor for Wilson and currently is the Top 55 meter sprinter in Section V. Catarra hasn’t lost this season. That focus Catarra has in the classroom is used on the track. It works out well in both facets of her life.

Catarra has not decided on a college yet, but she plans to run at the next level.
