LOWELLVILLE OH- Records are made to be broken, isn’t that the saying? Well Lowellville’s Sophia Yon has taken that to heart. She hasn’t even come close to ending her career as a Rocket, and yet she has already broken records held in not just the school, but the entire county.
Talent like this is once in a generation. And people don’t expect it to come out of a small school like Lowellville. Sophia likes the feeling of going to meet with her smaller team, and being underestimated. She doesn’t really need an advantage on her competition, but that definitely gives her one.
One of the strengths of Yon is her ability to be a great teammate while also focusing on personal records. With a team as tight knit as the Rockets, every athlete thrives on their teammates support and feedback. Yon puts the girls on her team, and their success at the top of her priority list.
Yon was able to come on to YSN’s Running Point this week to talk to us about the success she is finding. She talks to Ty Bartell, and Anthony Hartwig about how it felt to break records, what makes the track team so special and so much more.
