Former Seymour High School state track and field champion Eric Werskey came to watch one of Sidney Carr’s basketball games during her junior year.
Seeing Carr’s size and strength, Werskey had a feeling that she could be successful in track and field.
“He emailed me that night and said I had the body type for shot put and discus and asked me if I wanted to come out,” Carr said. “He worked with me and was pretty much my coach through the winter until track season.”
