Freedom senior track athlete Sandra Akachukwu committed to the University of Western Kentucky Oct. 18.
Akachukwu, who transferred from King as a junior, captured regional championships in the 100- (12.41 seconds) and 200-meters (25.33) and in the long jump (17 feet 7 inches) last season. She was also the runner up in the high jump (5-4) and earned Class 4A state medals in all four events.
Akachukwu said she is unsure what events she will compete in at college and may continue doing all four.
