Chiefs of Santaluces: Syann Timmons


Marie Bobb , Staff Writer

“I started running track in 6th grade. I first started it to be with my best friend, but eventually I surpassed her. I surpassed her because I grew to love this sport. Over the years I progressed into high school categories. I never believed I was going to make it far, but now I’m on my way. Based on previous years, even with side-tracked love of wrestling, I have colleges looking at me. I have coaches looking out for me and talking to colleges especially the one of my dreams, FIU. I was not always the best student, but my sport helped me. Not everything is always as happy in my life, but track helped me. Track elevated my mind, body and heart when nothing else could.”
