The Crooke Sister’s Jumping Journey

Date: Jan 05 2021

Speed Capital Spotlight Athletes, Kenzie and Kya Crooke, began their track careers in 2016.  At the time, Kenzie had just turned 7 years old and Kya was 9.  They both began as sprinters and competed in long jump.  The thrill of competition captivated them after their first season. 

Kya and Kenzie are from Fishers, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis and are members of the Soca Speed Track Club.  These sisters have found their passion in long jump, high jump, triple jump, and multi-events.  They have been recognized at the State, Regional and National level, both earning multiple All-American honors.

The Crooke sisters train together, support one another, and push each other to be the best they can be.  Kya and Kenzie both strive to improve and PR each track and field season.  Having both been silver medalists at the 2019 Junior Olympics, their next goal is to win a National title. 

In the future, Kenzie would like to be a middle and high school record holder and attend a D1 college for track.  Kya currently holds several middle school records and aspires to long jump 20 feet and high jump 6 feet in high school.  She is looking forward to breaking the high school high jump record, which her mother currently holds. 

Both girls aspire to be Olympic athletes and have been working tirelessly to accomplish this goal.  Their future looks bright!
