Athletic Excellence


The 5-foot-8 senior thrower and hurdler was a double gold medalist at the Class 7A state meet this past season, launching the shot put 40 feet, 4.5 inches and leaping a wind-aided personal-best of 41-1.25 in the triple jump. Johnson also won a bronze medal at June’s New Balance Nationals Outdoor, soaring 41-6.5 in the long jump, which at the time of her selection was the nation’s No. 8 distance among prep girls competitors in 2022. She graduated as a three-time individual state champion and as the 2022 Mobile Optimist Club 7A Female Track Athlete of the Year. Her personal-best throw at NBNO ranked No. 8 among girls prep competitors in the state this spring.

Johnson has maintained a 3.49 weighted GPA in the classroom. She has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of South Alabama this fall.
