Kayla Smith of Central Cabarrus Track and Field has signed with UNC Pembroke. Kayla specializes in sprints and has played a vital role in Central Cabarrus’ program. “I know that my first two years as head coach were going to be a tough transition, but an athlete like Kayla Smith helps tremendously. Not only is she fast, but she has a great work ethic and calling to be a leader,” said CCHS Coach David Madorin. Kayla’s main events are the 100m, 200m, 400m Relay, and the 800m Relay. “Kayla will be missed at Central, but is looking forward to a succesful, exciting career at UNC Pembroke.” Kayla will be competing in the SPC conference championship, NC Regionals, and the NC 3A State Championships before her high school career comes to a close.
