WILMINGTON — Kennedy Wong is emerging as a leader at Ursuline Academy, not just on the track but in the various school clubs in which she participates and in the classroom. Not bad for a sophomore whose 16th birthday is still a few days away.
Athletically, Wong has made her mark on the cross country and indoor (winter) and outdoor (spring) track teams since eighth grade, when she started running with the varsity. She’s been racing since age 7, when she took part in her first 5K with her father, Brian.
“I guess I was at the age when I was deciding what sport I wanted to do,” she said. “I tried out soccer and karate a little bit, but running was just something that I enjoyed, so I stuck with it.”
