• What are your favorite memories from this sport?

During a meet by sheer miracle, I threw 90 feet.

I have been painting, practicing my music, writing music, playing video games, and throwing shot and discus in the yard.

• Do you have any advice for underclassmen?

You are the only person who can control your progress in anything — not just in sports but in life. Cherish the time you have with each other.

• What do you miss about the spring sports season?

I miss teaching junior high athletes how to throw properly, working the concession stands after throwing, and I miss the friends I made. I also miss the weightlifting days when I thought the workout was insane.

• What are your future plans?

I plan to go to college and double-majoring in Choral and Instrumental Education.

• Coach Owens on Hallie

“Hallie is a hard-working athlete who is extremely focused on the details and technique of throwing.”
