Samantha Gonzaga is a junior who competes in distance events for Hersey High School in Arlington Heights.
Samantha will be covering meets mainly in the north suburbs of Chicago and other parts of the state when her schedule allows.
Samantha wanted to be a Milesplit intern because she wants to gain experience in professional writing, and she has a passion for running. She would love to share the excitement of running and the amazing experiences that come with it through her writing.
An animal that best describes Samantha is a badger because it is small and competitive. She thinks the best event in track and field is the 3200m, while her favorite sports team is the Gonzaga Bulldogs basketball. The food she enjoys most is Pho, a Vietnamese soup. Samantha thinks iPhone is the best and that Brooks makes the best flats and Saucony make the best spikes.
"I am excited to work with the MileSplit team and meet runners from all over the state. I can't wait to see what this season has to offer. Best of luck everyone!" ~Samantha Gonzaga
