Sophomore sets bar high
May 24, 2010
Sophomore Taylor Glenn established high standards for all track and field athletes, by setting school records in the 4×200 and 4×400 relays and competing in this year’s State Track meet.
“It feels really great to be a sophomore going to state,” Glenn said. “I’m so excited and ready to go.”
Under the training and guidance of her father and Coach David Nanez, Taylor spends nearly eight hours weekly running outside of school practice.
“My workout that I do is block work, starts, run throughs and speed,” Glenn said.
She said she feels privileged to be a sophomore competing at this year’s state competition.
“I was shocked when my dad and Coach Nanez told me that I was competing in the triple jump and sprints at state,” Glenn said.
Like district where Glenn placed in each event; she feels that advancing to state will hold its difficulties.
“I am looking forward to the people and the competition, but the triple jump will be my biggest challenge because it’s a lot of steps,” Glenn said.
