I have had a passion for running since competing in my first 5K race at age 5. I have run competitively for USATF since 2012. I hold the 13-14 and 15-16 girls' records in the 1500 M and the 3000 M for Border Association. I've been All American a total of 14 times in XC and track at the USATF Junior Olympic Nationals. I hold the middle school El Paso Independent School District records for 7th grade girls 2400 M, the 8th grade girls 1600 M, and the 2400 M. I have been the first female finisher in multiple 5K and 8K road races, and first finisher overall in two 5K races. I have run three 24 hour races with my longest distance completed being 85 miles in 24 hours. Since entering high school, I am undefeated in all of my high school regular season XC and Track meets to date. As a Freshman, I advanced to Regionals where I placed 5th in XC. I then advanced to States where I placed 5th (beating three of the girls who beat me at Regionals). My best time in the Freshman high school XC season was 17:34 for 5K at States. For track, my Freshman year, I advanced to Regionals in the 1600 M and PRed with a time of 5:06. I placed third in the regional meet for the 3200 M, and qualified for the state meet. I placed fifth at States with a PR of 10:50.32 in the 3200 M. During my Sophomore year I again advanced to States in XC where I placed 14th. In Track, I advanced to Regionals and barely missed advancing to States in both the 3200 M and the 1600 M. During the 2017 club season I advanced to the USATF Junior Olympics (XC Nationals) where I placed 9th in the nation for 13-14 year old girls. I was All American for the 5th year in a row in XC. Last fall for the 15-16 year old girls I placed 4th at the USATF XC Junior Olympics Nationals and was again named All American. Last summer at the USATF National Junior Olympics, I placed 2nd in the nation for 15-16 girls in the 3000 M event. I also ran in the 1500 M, where I became the National Champion. This past summer, I PRed in both of my events at the USATF National Junior Olympics, placing 2nd in the 3000 M (10:07.9) and 5th in the 1500 M (4:39.7). Last fall, as a sophomore, I was voted the top XC runner in El Paso by El Paso Times after advancing to States for the second year in a row and remaining undefeated at the El Paso XC meets. I am looking forward to continuing to compete at the High School level and preparing to run at the College level. I repeat, running is my passion.
