(DESOTO) DeSoto’s Kaitlyn McGinnitey is the Parkland Health Mart Pharmacy Play It Forward Athlete of the Week.

McGinnitey set season-best times in the 100 and 300-meter hurdles during the Class 4 District 1 track meet this past weekend, taking 1st place in both events. She also anchored the 4-by-400 meter relay team to a 1st place finish and anchored the 4-by-200 meter relay team to a 2nd place finish.

Head coach Terry Frank has nothing but praise for McGinnitey and her ability to handle adversity.

Kaitlyn will compete in those four events in the Class 4 Sectionals on Saturday in West Plains. As the Athlete of the Week, McGinnitey will receive a certificate and a t-shirt and Parkland Health Mart Pharmacy will donate $25 to a charity of McGinnitey’s choice.
