Recent Yates Center graduate Hadley Splechter is arguably the best long distance runner southeast Kansas has ever seen, which is why readers chose him as the male athlete of the month for May. 

In his time as a Wildcat runner, Splechter accumulated a slew of gold medals at the Class 2-A state track meets. Most recently this spring, Splechter brought home the gold in the 3200-meter, 1600-meter and 800-meter runs. 

Despite being known for his long-distance accomplishments, those were not his initial intentions.
