Marshall Fundamental Secondary School senior Callie Guthrie was selected to receive an Academic and Athletic Scholarship worth approximately $160,000 for four years at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. She is majoring in Kinesiology, with hopes to get into nursing. Guthrie has been part of the cross country and track & field teams at Marshall since her freshman year. Since then, her coaches Lewis Watson and Tramieka Thomas, along with the help of her parents, Amy and John Guthrie, have helped her become an accomplished runner.
When asked about the new adventure she’s embarking on Guthrie stated, ”I am excited to run as a Westmont Warrior. I’m grateful to my coaches at Marshall Fundamental for their dedication and support.”
In cross country alone, Callie was a CIF Qualifier in her freshman year, as well as setting a personal record for three miles at 18 minutes and 37 seconds.
In her Sophomore year Callie began excelling on the track & field team as well. Not only did she earn First Team, All Mission Valley League honors in Cross Country and Track & Field, but was also selected to compete with other elite runners at the Arcadia Invitational. For each year Callie has run she has qualified for CIF, including running in the CIF finals her sophomore year. In her four years of running on the team she has set the Marshall Fundamental record in the 800 meters (2:16.56), the 1600 meters (5:14.45), and the 3200 meters (12:11.57).
Based on coach Watson’s assessment, “That the only thing better than Callie’s Athletic performance is her character as a human being.”
