Carly Holadia (Jr)
Girls Varsity Track & Field
Carly was nominated by Coach Halsey. Carly currently has scored the most points for her team across two meets. At the Lake Howell Silverhawk Open, Carly finished 2nd in the High Jump with a personal best jump of 1.47 meters. At the same meet, she placed 3rd in the girls open 800 with a time of 2:27 and the closed out the meet by helping lead her 4×400 meter relay team to a second-place finish. Carly also had standout performances at the Toho Invitational where she placed 5th in the high jump, 2nd in the 800 and 8th in the 4×400 relay. Carly is a leader and team player; she is always up for the challenge of competing in multiple events to help her team. In the classroom, Carly stands out as well. She currently has a 3.0 unweighted GPA as she takes multiple AP and honors classes in the APC+ Program.
Carly started running when she was very little (4 to 5 years old) as her mom is a runner so she would join her in some of the local 5ks. Her college plans are undecided at this point but she does plan on running collegiately. In her free time, she enjoys riding horses and simply spending time with her cross country friends. One of the biggest reasons why she loves running is because of the people that are a part of it. They are one of the nicest and kindest people you can meet. Two fun facts about Carly is that she has two adorable little Shih Tzus named Tucker and Percy and that every year of her high school career, she has run the OUC half marathon with her cross country team.
A big shout out to Carly for all her recent success! Keep working hard and the best of luck to you the rest of the season.
