Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: My favorite school subject is biology because I enjoy learning about the human body.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I played soccer for five years before I started track. I like playing soccer with my little brothers.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: My track coach, Coach Blake. He supports me during practices and track meets. He tells me to be patient, to

trust the process and encourages me to be the best athlete that I can be.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: My pre-meet ritual is reading because it relaxes me. After a meet I like to eat carbs, fruits and veggies.

Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?

A: “Level Up,” by Ciara

From the Sideline

“Won the 100, 200 and 400 at Pasco this past weekend. She earned Female Athlete of the Meet.” -Coach Jeff Brady
