Makenna Barton’s freshman year is now in the books. The girl known as “Mackie B” in her Woodinville days, competed in the pole vault for the Washington Huskies. A brilliant student and tough competitor, she had headed over to Montlake with high hopes.
“College is so different,” Barton said. “I had my ups and downs with athletics, school and friends. But right now, I can say that I’ve learned so much about myself as an athlete.”
As happens with all freshmen, time demands gave Barton a rude awakening.
