Claire Collins 9/4/14

Our Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week for this week is Claire Collins, a member of the cross country team at Winamac High School.

Claire broke the Midwest Conference girls cross country record in leading her team to the title in the last-ever cross country meet in the MWC due to the disbanding of the Conference after this year. Her time of 19:37 beat the previous record of 19:40 and will forever stand as the Midwest Conference mark.

The diminutive Sophomore also established the Winamac School Record with her effort, and her conference win added to her season’s accomplishments which include the Bi-County championship and a 2nd place finish in the prestigious New Prairie Invitational.

Claire is the daughter of Jill and Adam Collins and will be featured on a future “Saturday Sportsline with Nathan Welter” on K99.3 and will have a featured picture and story on

Congratulations to Claire Collins of Winamac High School, our “Tyler Roth/WKVI Athlete of the Week”
