I run the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, 4 by 1 relay and other sprints.

I did CYO St. Matthew’s track in 6th grade and then again at Evergreen in 8th grade and I have been doing it since.

Winning the races was awesome and I felt really strong. My times were a little slow, but it’s the beginning of the season and I’m excited to improve!

My goal for this season is to make it to state in both the 100 hurdles and the 300 hurdles and to place top 8 in the 100 hurdles. My ultimate goal in track is to be able to compete at the collegiate level.

My favorite part of being on the track team is my teammates. Everyone is always so supportive of each other and it’s like a family.

I want to thank all of my coaches and my parents for always supporting me.

This year I did swim team and cross country, and I also like to bike.

My mom ran track also and she won state for the 100 hurdles in Oregon in 1986!
