Mission Valley League Champion for the 4x100m relay and the 100m hurdles, senior Joy Hano, returns to the track for her fourth and final year on varsity. Holding the team on her wings, Hano brings motivation and team spirit to her teammates in hopes that the Eagles can fly their way through a successful season.
Hano participates in Club Plyometric Fusion and is constantly training to get better at every practice. Originally, Hano was tricked by her friend to try out for track her freshman year, but it has been one of the best mistakes she has ever made.
“She has been a top runner and competitor since her freshman year and has been placing first in all of her events,” Coach Ryan Kammerman explained. “Now, she is taking on long jump and continues to bring her general leadership skills our team.”
With her close relationship to her hurdle and relay teammates, Hano has high hopes of finishing this season strong by placing first in league as a team this year.
