When Mikayla Pulliam gets to Las Cruces this summer, there will be at least one familiar face to greet her.
Pulliam, the three-year starter for the Los Alamos Hilltopper cross country team and distance standout on the track and field team, will head south to join the New Mexico State University Aggies this coming fall. Pulliam signed her National Letter of Intent in a ceremony Tuesday at Los Alamos High School.
With the end of the track season quickly approaching, Pulliam said that her high school career coming up through the Hilltopper program has ensured her that she’s ready to take her game to the collegiate level.
“I’m definitely prepared,” she said. “I’ve loved running here, every second of it. It’s a lot of hard work, but I think it’s definitely a worthwhile experience.”
Pulliam is the first athlete at Los Alamos this year to sign with a Division I school.
She went down to visit NMSU’s campus in the winter and got to tour the facilities and got a chance to hang out with the coaches and some of the other runners.
Before making her decision to attend NMSU, Pulliam was also looking at a few schools in California and even the Air Force Academy.
