Girls’ HS Track and Field: Kuntz a cut above the rest for Trinity

National Sports

You need to give Trinity’s Masy Kuntz a second when asking how successful she’s been in track and field, because there’s a lot to remember.

“I’ve qualified 17 times for state,” Masy Kuntz said.

And the success doesn’t stop at just state qualifications.

“I currently hold the school long jump record and I’m a part of the 800 meter relay school record holder,” Kuntz said.

And she’s been a top three state finisher multiple events, but her go-to event is the long jump.

“[In] my first year going out for track,” Kuntz said, “I had actually gone to nationals for [the] long jump, and ever since then I’ve been working on long jump, because that’s where my career has taken me.”

And that career could reach the next level, as colleges have already begun talking to her about jumping for their programs. 

“It’s a good feeling,” Kuntz said, “because I know all my hard work is really paying off. All the lifting, running.” 

Kuntz also knows that doesn’t mean the hard work stops, it’s just beginning.

“It puts a little bit of pressure on me,” Kuntz said, “because it makes me want to jump as far as I can to impress more coaches and maybe get better offers. But at the same time I know I just have to keep my head on straight and focus on doing what’s best for me.”

Kuntz thinks she can compete at the Division II or NAIA Level.
