Rhet Pennington signs with WTAMU

Body
CHS Class of 2020 graduate Rhet Pennington signed with WTAMU recently to compete on their track and field team. In his second trip to the state track and field meet as a junior, Rhet picked up a silver in shot and a gold in discus, executing new personal bests in both events. He was expected to repeat as a state medalist as a senior, but his career was cut short when the coronavirus disrupted all UIL events. In addition to his track and field success, Rhet was a standout on the golf course, and was key to the Wildcat football team’s success. He was first team All-District on both sides of the ball—at defensive end and at center. In the final athletic awards presentation of his senior year, Rhet was named Lineman of the Year by Coach Chris Koetting. Rhet plans to major in Agriscience. He is the son of Shea and Kasi Pennington and Amy Hernandez.
