Ethan Fulk is back on the track.
Out last year for personal reasons, the junior adaptive track standout competed in his first meet of the season Saturday. He raced in two events at the Tiger Invitational in Pensacola.
Fulk competed in the 200 (1:28.25) and 800 (7:30.68) wheelchair events. He enjoyed getting back to doing what he loves
“It feels good to be back,” Fulk said. “I’m happy to be back with the team doing what I love. I’m excited for the season.”
He burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2017 and won state championships in the 200, 800 and shot put.
He wants to get back to that level this season.
“I’m trying to get back into shape and be as strong as I was a couple of years ago,” he said.
He appears to be on his way.
Competing on a warm day at Washington High School, he pushed himself hard as he made his way around the track. Fans cheered and music played as Fulk once again showed that anything is possible.
“I hope to show people that they can do something. You don’t have to let anything hold you back,” he said.
