Tia Lampo Ready to Sprint for the ‘Wolves

| Track & Field

Tia Lampo (Thunder Bay, ON) will be making her debut as a Thunderwolf this weekend in the Hangar at the LU vs. The World Meet. Tia joined the Thunderwolves this year as she is studying Kinesiology at Lakehead.

Lampo has been with the Lakehead Running Club for the past two years training under Lakehead Varsity sprint coach Joe McDonough.  During her time with the club she has seen her personal best in the 400m improve by 4 seconds; she currently holds personal bests of 58.23 in the 400m and 26.43 in the 200m.

Tia has shown tremendous improvement in her last 2 years, I’ve seen her shave 4 seconds off of her personal bests and I believe this will continue to be the trend as she furthers her skills at Lakehead. She has tons of potential, now it’s just a matter of unlocking it and providing her an outlet,” said Coach McDonough

Tia competed in last summer’s Canadian Junior Track & Field Championships in Ottawa, where she finished 18th and Tia is currently ranked 37th in Canada in the 400m.

Joe has done a great job building a strong Club spring group at the high school level over the last several years.  It is great to see that some of these athletes are choosing to come to Lakehead and continue to work with him.  Tia is a strong athlete who is relatively new to the sport and has lots of room to grow and develop.  She will have an immediate impact of the team and be an athlete that the sprint group can build around for years to come,” explains Lakehead Track Head Coach, Kip Sigsworth

“I’m excited to become a part of the Lakehead Track & Field team, as I’ve seen steady improvement since beginning with the program and I believe this is the place to continue that trend.” – Tia Lampo
