The Labette Bank Athlete of the Month from Southeast Kansas is recently graduated high school senior Faith Turner of Pittsburg High School. While Turner didn't get a senior season of track and field to set more record or gain more state titles she had one of the best careers we've ever seen for a high school girls track and field athlete from Southeast Kansas.
Tradition is very strong at Pittsburg High School with the likes of multiple time state champions Susan Samuels, Taylor Muff, McKenzie Wilks and now Turner. Turner was an 11-time all-state performer at Pittsburg High with a season that she didn't get to compete in. Turner also won four individual state championships and nine SEK league titles in track and field for the Purple Dragons over the last three seasons. Turner has signed to jump at Wichita State next season.
Labette Bank would like to congratulate Faith on an outstanding career.
Labette Bank is a proud supporter of sports coverage in Southeast Kansas with Sports in Kansas.
