Corzine gives nod to EIU


When Corzine was asked about others who helped her on her way she mentioned Coach Cline from middle school.

“He got us in shape and developed the love to run,” Corzine said. “Coach (Todd) Rork (A&M Sr. High) was a thrower, but he does all his research for our workouts to help us.”

She also cited teammates.

“Megan (Stringer), of course,” Corzine said. “She was older, but I always looked up to her. And, Madison (Renfro). She kept me strong. She was my toughest competitor, but also by best friend.”

Renfro won the state title in the 100 hurdles last year and she and Corzine battled and pushed each other for three years in the hurdles.

Coach Rork, who was a state thrower in high school for Shelbyville, has appreciated having Corzine on his team.

“She is very versatile,” Coach Rork said. “She leads by example. Her work ethic is unmatched. That will be hard to replace. Her brings the same effort to practice as she does to meets. She does a good job with the younger teammates with what they struggle with. She helps kids in her own class, as well.”

Rork also cites Corzine’s work ethic in the off-season.

“She stays active in the winter, if she’s not playing basketball. I give her off-season workouts and she does them. She takes others to do them with her. In the spring she comes in fresh and conditioned, mentally and physically.”

Rork was asked what difference their would be for Corzine when she moves up to the collegiate level (D-I).

“A new uniform,” Rork said. “That’s the only difference. She doesn’t need to work any harder.”

Corzine isn’t sure what kind of a degree to get at EIU.

“I know you are not suppose to just be focused on track, but I’m excited about it,” Corzine said. “The academics are good at EIU, too. Track will help me keep up with studies. I’m looking at communications, maybe English. I want to establish myself the first couple years and then dive into a major.”
