The state’s 2014-15 Gatorade Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year, the 5-foot-5 senior won the national championship in the triple jump and finished as the runner-up in the long jump at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor this past season. Marsh’s top triple jump of the season of 42 feet, 2.25 inches ranked No. 5 in the nation among prep competitors at the time of her selection. Her top long jump at NBNO of 19-9.75 ranked No. 13. Marsh missed the entire indoor track season and the first month of the outdoor season after an MRI in December revealed that she had spina bifida, a rare birth defect that affects the spine. She had to wear a brace every day for three months over the winter.
Marsh has maintained a weighted 4.29 GPA in the classroom. She has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of Georgia this fall.
A co-founder of her school’s Young Life club, Marsh is member of the Praise Ministry and Dance Ministry at her church. She has volunteered locally as a mentor to elementary-school students with special needs and as a peer tutor.
