At the time of her selection, Whyte’s winning time of 23.30 seconds ranked No. 9 nationally among prep competitors in 2022. Whyte also swept the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes at the Class 4 state meet, leading the Hurricanes to the team title. She clocked a meet-record 100 time of 11.63 in her qualifying heat at the state meet, a performance that ranked No. 34 in the country.
Whyte has maintained a weighted 3.90 GPA in the classroom. She will begin her senior year of high school in the fall.
Whyte has volunteered locally with the Newport News Public Schools Bloom/Flourish program, which is designed to empower young girls to become community leaders. A member of her school choir, she has also donated her time with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula.
