Casey Rothschild Holliston's American Ninja Warrior

September 19, 2018

Casey Rothschild, a 20-year-old junior at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, has become the youngest woman to qualify on the American Ninja Warrior course on the NBC show's Monday night broadcasts.

Casey became interested in ANW (American Ninja Warrior) in 2014 when Kacy Catanzaro went viral for being the first woman to complete a qualifier and finals course. She sent in an application through the American Ninja Warrior website. "I sent in a 3 min video with that application (everyone has to) with a series of videos of me doing ninja, pole vaulting and trapeze" Casey said.

"I trained ninja for 7 months before getting on the show. It depends on the obstacle but most I’m able to get within one practice (maybe 1-5 tries ) and others take a few days. I had done a 14' wall in practice but never a 14'6" wall like on the show (which had a shorter run up than I am used to)".

Casey completed the course by scaling the 14.5-foot wall and hitting the buzzer in 4:57seconds.

Will college put her plans for competing in ANW on hold?  "I plan on applying to the show again next year to compete. I am training while at school as well as working at a ninja gym. Throughout the school year there are local competitions so I will be going to those to get ready for next year".

Casey will have thousands of fans from Holliston watching ANW and rooting for her in the next series..
