Capital Prep Track Star Signs with Division 1 School
Capital Preparatory Magnet School’s track and field star Ghynaia Morgan signed her national letter of intent to run at the University of Tennessee Martin, a Division 1 school. Her emotional signing was featured in a news story this week on WTNH Channel 8.
Surrounded by family and friends, she spoke tearfully of her achievement.
“I’ve been through a lot. I don’t come from a family that has it all, so for me to get something that I’ve always dreamed of, it actually makes me happy,” she said. “I didn’t think I was going to get a Division 1 Scholarship. But with the help of my coaches and family being there, I was able to accomplish my goals.”
