Hi my name is Diamani Canuto. I was a gymnast for 7 years and right before high school began I joined the Leominster 17u Girls Flag Football team. Going into high school one of the sports I really wanted to do was track. My first year I switched from sprints to the mid-distance during the indoor season. This was probably the best decision because not only did it push my limits but it made me want to get better and better each time. I love the rush of adrenaline I feel when I step on the track and when I get off. I also began high jump this year (2021) and have really been able to make a connection with the event. The main reason I want to run at the collegiate level is to finally get the feeling of being able to practice on a REAL track, not just hallways. I believe I still have more room to grow and haven’t been able to reach my full potential. I want to be apart of a team that shows effort 100% of the time and the support that comes along. I’m a very determined and coachable athlete who wants to build and become one of the best out there!
