“I’m going to take this opportunity and run with it.” Those were the words of Huntingdon High School senior Carson Warman as he signed this past Thursday to run cross country and track and field at Bethel University next fall.
Carson has been a part of the cross country team for the Mustangs for the last four years, and has been on the track and field team since it started three years ago at Huntingdon. Cross country meets involve a 5K (3.1-mile) course, and Carson ran in the 4×8 relay for the track team, as well as the 800-meter run.
Huntingdon track coach Clint Ezell describes Carson as first and foremost dependable: “Carson was always my go-to guy if I needed to know something. He is the cream of the crop and has worked hard to get to this point, and we are extremely proud of him. I have no doubt he will succeed at Bethel and in whatever he chooses to do with his life.”
Carson is planning on majoring in business and accounting at Bethel. He is the son of Patrick and Dana Warman and has two siblings, Mallory and Talon.
Carson was joined at the ceremony by several classmates and fellow teammates from the track and cross country teams. He is coached in track by Clint Ezell and by Elizabeth Lott for Cross Country.
At Bethel, Carson will be coached by Craig Kilburn, who said he is excited to add Carson to the Bethel family and stated that he admired Carson’s work ethic. Kilburn also pointed out that Carson is the first track and cross country athlete to sign from Huntingdon at Bethel. According to Kilburn, he came to know Carson through Bethel’s use of HHS’s running track and facilities.
