Senior Becki Carman proved her love for the sport when she said her hobbies were track, track, track, and coaching track. Obviously, she is a runner for the Cavaliers track team and has been running track for ten years. She also says her other hobbies are “reading, working out, and painting.”
Carman is a sports science major. Not only has she been on the track team while at school, she also tried volleyball for one year. She knew she was destined to be part of the track team when she pulled up to Cabrini as a senior in high school for a visit and Coach O’Hora, Cabrini’s track coach was the first person she saw that day. It was sort of a “divine providence,” Carman said.
Her training schedule is very hectic. She trains a total of 22 hours per week. She throws three times a week, spends three days in the weight room, and does many drills. She also attends many throwing clinics to improve her talent.
Carman holds the school record for javelin and has qualified for ECAC’s all four years of college. As a sophomore, she came in 7th place at the ECAC’s. Her two goals for this year are to make it to nationals and to qualify for Penn Relays. If she does achieve these goals and qualifies she will even break the men’s record here at Cabrini.
She says her favorite food is blueberry bagels and her favorite color is blue. If this track star were trapped on an island she would bring her javelins, her cat, and her guinea pig named javelin as her three allowed items.
After graduation this senior will miss her “friends on campus, and all the fun we had.” She also says she will miss the education at the college. She also hopes to get a good job using her major.
Carman’s advice for upcoming track team members is to “set a goal and work hard as hell to get it. Keep on keeping on.”
