It’s no secret that Heartland’s Class of 2018 is a talented group! These students have excelled in many different areas throughout their time in high school and also exhibit great character.

One particular area that this class has been gifted in is athletics. Several students in the class have broken school records, and their names are proudly displayed on the record board outside of the north gym. With that kind of skill, it only makes sense to further their athletic careers. Of the 21 students in the class, seven of them will continue on to participate in a sport(s) in college. That’s one third of the class! Learn more about these athletes below:

It’s such a fun race and to be able to run it with such great teammates has been awesome!”
