The 5-foot-4 sophomore raced to the Class 6A individual state championship this past season with a time of 19:10.39, leading the Greyhounds to the state title as a team. She also won the Class 6A Southern Regional Championships, in addition to placing second at the Admiral Brickyard Bayou Classic, Pass Christian Invitational and Admiral Invitational.
Rainey has maintained a 4.26 weighted GPA in the classroom. She will begin her junior year of high school this fall.
Growing up as a child of a parent in the military, Rainey has consistently volunteered her time supporting military personnel and veterans wherever her family has been stationed, including coat drives, food drives and serving food at homeless shelters. She has continued that service by donating her time at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, entertaining and supporting 3,500 active-duty military and their family members at several holiday events. Rainey also helped prepare sports equipment to support Special Olympics of Mississippi’s Softball team during their annual Training Camp at Keesler, along with collecting toys and key household goods for donation to the base’s “Airmen’s Attic” a place where junior enlisted military members and their families can get needed items at no cost.
