Senior Standout: Hinsdale's Bethany Lacock

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - At the starting line, she's equal like everyone else. But not for long as Bethany Lacock separates herself from the rest of the pack.

"She's a great athlete. She's a hard worker in the weight room and has really dedicated herself in the last two years. She's an all-state basketball player, an all-state volleyball player, and she was all-state trickster last year. She does everything a coach could ask for and then some," Hinsdale track head coach Gordon Hawks says.

And wouldn't you know it, she separates herself in the classroom and community as well.

"Bethany would have a 4.0 if she didn't have one A minus. As far as her grades, they're exemplary. She couldn't do anything more in the classroom to make herself any better," said Hawks.

"I'm graduating as our class valedictorian and I was a National Merit Scholar which was all really exciting for me. I'm also involved in 4h and FFA and National Honor Society and student council and it's just a small town so you have to do everything or nobody - there's not enough people to do it," said Bethany Lacock, Hinsdale Senior.

So, is there anything Bethany doesn't do well?

"I'm in band but I'm not good at it (laughs). I can play but I'm not a musician at all (laughs)," Lacock said.

Bethany doesn't know if she'll be doing track in college but she does know what she'll be studying.

"She wants to go to Carroll and major in pre-pharmacy and I think she has a great opportunity to do that right now," said Hawks.

Bethany has come in first across the finish line many times in her high school career and there's no reason to think that she won't continue to separate herself from the rest.
