Tanasia Hoffler Quotes
What does it feel like going from high school a year ago to now a Division III national champion? “It feels really good. Indoors, I actually competed and I finished fifth in the triple jump. I knew outdoors with the wind and the pressure that comes along with being here along with the great competition. Some other events earlier in the meet didn’t work out exactly as planned, so I knew coming into the last event of nationals for me I had to go big.”
Walk us through your progression of jumps: “Well, my first one I went out there and foot faulted. After that one, my jumps continued to get better and better and better. My last jump was actually the one that won it for me. I knew there were going to be a lot of jumpers before me that could have popped off really any jump. So, I knew that I had to go out and continue to improve with each and every jump. I knew once I got into the finals, I would have to continue to jump better and better and better. Then, on my last jump, I really gave it my all, and it worked out very well for me.”
