Hannah Rolfe is off to the University of Toronto, signing on to compete on the Varsity Blues track and field team next season.
Rolfe, a high jumper with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club, said she is excited about competing for the Blues.
“Stellar academics, impeccable coaching and the atmosphere of the team and campus,” she said about her reasons for choosing the university.
Rolfe is a Grade 12 student at Walnut Grove Secondary.
She is no stranger to success, having won gold in the event at some high profile meets, including at the Canadian Legion youth track and field championships in 2013 and the Western Canada Summer Games in 2015. She also won silver at the B.C. high school track and field championships last year.
“Hannah is an outstanding athlete and has worked hard for so many years,” said Dwayne Lotnick, the head coach of the Mustangs. “She’s an amazing talent that is going to excel at the next level.”
