The Hearne Eagles girl’s track team has long been a staple of success at the school. They have had some outstanding young ladies come through the program over the years. Now they have another great group of young ladies and their success this season has been phenomenal.
Their leader is a veteran who has endured some of life’s hardships to get to this point in her life. Tamia Wiltz is a real feel good story about dealing with and overcoming the obstacles that life puts in your path. She was diagnosed with lupus a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack it’s own tissue.
There is no cure for the lupus but current treatments offer ways to improve ones quality of life. Ms. Wiltz has turned herself into one of the top sprinters in the state in the 100 meters as well as a spokesperson to teach others about the disease.
My hat is off to such an inspiring and hard working young lady. She has the top time in district and is the one of the favorites to win the event in the region. Her heart, dedication, and hard work is an inspiration to her teammates and all that come in contact with her. Hats off to one of the Area most outstanding and talented athletes.
