Rosary Academy is home to numerous outstanding athletes who amaze us with their talents each and every week. One of these outstanding athletes is Emma Hoferer ‘19, one of Rosary’s top cross country and track & field runners. Her ability and drive each week help make her unstoppable in her sport. Now Emma has broadened her horizons and competed in a triathlon, which takes mental and physical toughness. The Royal Reporter decided to learn more about Emma’s adventure and experience during this new daunting competition.

RR: What made you want to compete in a triathlon?

Emma: I got started through Rosary because the coaches know I love being able to do multiple activities, especially within one race. It’s my first and only one I have competed in, but I loved the experience. A triathlon was on my “running bucket list,” and now I’m able to say that I’ve completed it.

RR: What was the triathlon called and how long was the race?

Emma: I participated in the Laguna Nigel Triathlon, in which I won first place in the 16-19 age division. It’s called a sprint triathlon, so I started with a 5k run, then biked 8 miles, and finally swam 175 meters.

RR: How did it challenge you?

Emma: It pushed me to accomplish something that I have wanted to participate in. I made myself a “running bucket list,” and I wanted to fully complete each event that I took part in and give it my best.

RR: Would you compete again in a triathlon?

Emma: I would love to do more of them and I’m going to attempt to take part in another one in March. I’m not quite sure of the details yet, but I will hopefully find out soon.

Who knows what Emma will accomplish next?!  We know our Rosary community will be there supporting her on her next athletic journey. Emma won’t cease to surprise everyone with her spontaneous competitions and will continue to take part in activities that will challenge her athletic talents and mental strength. Keep an eye out for her next achievements to come!
