From the Sideline

“This is Tatiana’s first year competing in track and field. She is an amazing competitor in the shot put and discus. This season her best shot put throw was 32 feet, 7½ inches at the All-City meet, and her overall best throw in discus was 114-10 at the league competition, which placed her in third and has her heading to districts. Tatiana is also a member of our basketball team. When Tatiana is not putting time in on the field, she is putting time into her studies, both at the high school and college level, and still finds time to hold down a job. All around, Tatiana is an amazing person and competitor.”
