BILLINGS — No doubt about it, Billings Senior’s Tavy Findon is fast.
Four years of varsity track and field have produced all sorts of career first-place finishes between the hurdles and relays. Findon owns two State AA championships in the 1,600-meter relay and another in the 300-meter hurdles. She also earned all-conference, all-state and academic all-state honors tallying a 3.6 GPA.
Those credentials have landed Findon a track and field scholarship to Carroll College where coaches are encouraging her to give heptathlon a shot — a leap of faith considering she wasn’t quite sure about the event’s requirements.
“The college coaches, when they first started visiting, they were like, ‘Hey, have you ever thought about heptathlete?'” Findon recalled. “And I was like, ‘Well, what do you do with it?’ And they were like, ‘Oh, you do this, that and this.’ I was like, ‘OK, why not?’ I like to do a little of everything.”
Findon also earned varsity letters in basketball and volleyball for the Broncs, including a selection to the Montana 2019 all-star volleyball team.
She and her family are Denver Broncos fans and root for North Carolina on the college basketball court.
The Midland Roundtable will announce one male and one female winner at the Athlete of the Year banquet on Wednesday, May 15, at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center.
