She checks every one of our recruitment boxes and will serve as an impact athlete and leader for our team right away. Having improved so much in a short amount of time while at Memorial, we can't wait to see what Micah will be able to do at BSC."

In the release, Wade said: "I chose to attend BSC because they will offer tremendous support to me academically and athletically. I am excited to be a part of this inaugural track and field team and season at BSC, where we'll create and break several records for a new trailblazing program."
