Grace Hasler, Hauser junior track athlete

Hasler won the 100- and 300-meter hurdles at the Mid-Hoosier Conference meet to lead the Jets to a fifth-place team finish.

Her performance last week: “I felt pretty good about it. The past couple years, I’ve been hurt going into conference and some of this bigger meets, but this year, I took a bigger break between basketball and track, so I was a lot stronger and a lot more fit and a lot more ready.”

Athletics goal: “I’d like to (compete in) rodeo at a college.”

If you could travel anywhere: “I would probably go back to Gallup, New Mexico. There’s a rodeo out there where our nationals used to be.”
