Carbon High graduate adds MVP to long list of accomplishments in historic career

After finishing his high school career with two state titles at the Track and Field Meet at BYU last month, Garrett Marsing's career was arguably the best in the history of Carbon High School.

But thanks to the coaches at 3A schools from around the state, Marsing will have another piece of hardware to add to his already large collection.

Marsing was voted the Most Valuable Player in 3A Track and Field in a vote by coaches from 3A, according to Carbon High Track Coach Jimmy Jewkes.

"Garrett's performance on the track spoke for itself," said Jewkes.

Marsing completed his high school career with four school records and multiple state titles, including in the 1600 and 3200 meter races this year. He nearly added another in the 800 meter race finishing in second place while taking a third as part of the Boys Medley Relay team.

Marsing also took first in 3A at the Cross Country Meet in the fall.

"It's really cool to see him be recognized for all of the hard work he has put into this over the years," said Jewkes. "This couldn't have happened to a nicer kid."

But while Marsing's performance on the track was memorable, Jewkes said he and others know Marsing to be an even better person off it.

"He's been such a class act on and off the track and many athletes and coaches have seen that," Jewkes said.

Jewkes said Marsing has helped put Carbon High on the map and is a good example of the type of athletes that exist at smaller schools in the state.

Marsing is set to go on a two-year LDS Mission to Russia. Jewkes said he is planning on possibly attending BYU when he returns.
