Larissa Kijowski made Carlow University history on Wednesday, December 14.
Kijowski, a Dayton, Pa., native from West Shamokin High
School, signed the first Letter of Intent for Carlow’s inaugural track and
field team, which will begin competition in the spring of 2018.
Kijowski, who will also run cross country for the Celtics, will be part of the 2021 class and intends to major in nursing. She said she chose Carlow because of its Pittsburgh location, the high quality of the nursing program and the opportunity to compete in cross country and track and field.
Kijowski was the captain of the West Shamokin cross country team and was named the West Shamokin Female MVP. She finished in the top 10 runners in the Heritage Conference and the top 25 in District 6.
Pictured with Kijowksi are her mother Holly, her father Chad, and Carlow University cross country and track and field coach Greg Schmitt.
