At the TRAC Championship, Ariana was a second of breaking our school record in the 300 meter hurdles.  In addition to winning both hurdles championships, Ariana made it into the finals in both the 100 & 200 meter dashes, scoring in both.  We are excited to see how Ariana does in the OHSAA tournament meets.”

Next up is novice rower and freshman, Taylor Roscoe.  According to Head Rowing Coach Anna Muller: “Rowing can be incredibly unpredictable, however Taylor doesn’t let that affect her positive attitude. Even though this is her first season rowing, Taylor is the unique kind of athlete that is so ADAPTABLE she can help any boat go fast from any seat. She recently got placed unexpectedly into a varsity race at Midwest Championship and she rose to another level in just one race. The coaches are incredibly proud to see that girls like Taylor are the future of the rowing program at NDA.”
