It’s hard to believe that a mere four years ago, Iyanla Kollock had never tried running before. She knew she was athletic and was a cheerleader, but it wasn’t until she came to OLMA that she decided to give track a try. This morning, Iyanla was surprised by Coach Lenguadoro and the entire student body with flowers and balloons in celebration of her second State Championship win in the 55m. “She works hard and is very focused,” said Coach Leng. “It’s a huge accomplishment to be State Champ even once, and she did it twice.” Iyanla will be running for Rutgers University in New Brunswick this fall — definitely close enough for us to continue to watch her fly. Congratulations!
