Kelley Mulaney

2014 Rookie of the Year

Kelley started running track her sophomore year in high school at Cary-Grove and senior year was appointed captain of the girls team. She did not continue her running career in college but did volunteer when she could for Eastern Illinois University home track meets. After graduating from EIU, she landed her first teaching job, half way through the year, at Stewardson-Strasburg. When she was hired as a math teacher, she was also hired as the head track and field coach for both boys and girls. During her there, she had the pleasure of coaching, not only the first state qualifier but the first state medalist in school history. After her time there, she moved on to Macon Meridian High School where she now teaches math and is a volunteer assistant track coach.

She has spent the last two girls and three boys State Track meets working as a volunteer official. This past summer she got involved in USA Track and Field and had the pleasure of officiating several meets. The fall was the first time she was able to work at the State Cross Country Meet. Although she has just started to get involved in officiating, track and field has been a huge part of her life, and she hopes to continue contributing to the sport and assisting athletes like so many did for her.
