Track & Field: Regis Jesuit grad Ana Holland racing at Pan Am meet in Colombia


Regis Jesuit High School grad Ana Holland is in Medellin, Colombia, as she competes for Team USA at the Pan Am Junior Athletics Championship.

Holland — who is now at the University of Virginia — won all three sprint events (100, 200 and 400 meters) at the Class 5A state track meet in May, shortly before she graduated from Regis Jesuit.

At a qualifying meet in Des Moines, Iowa, Holland made the U.S. team for the Pan Am meet in the 200 meters and also may run one of the relays in the Aug. 23-25 meet, which includes athletes from all over the world.

Valor Christian graduate and sprint star Mary Beth Sant is also on the U.S. team.
