Tecumseh Vista Academy senior Krystalann Bechard will run like the wind for the Miami Hurricanes in the 2020-21 NCAA track and field season. She has signed her letter of intent to attend the Division 1 school on a full athletic scholarship.
In 2018-19 the Vista Vortex sprinter broke WECSSAA records in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres, winning gold medals in all 3 events at the Windsor-Essex County and regional, SWOSSAA championships. She won gold at the OFSAA West Regional meet in the 200m and 400m and gold at the provincial championship in the 400m as a Grade 11 competitor.
Krystalann was selected as a member of the Canadian team for the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association Under 18 championship in Mexico and earned a silver medal in the mixed 4 x 400 m relay.
While Krysatann will be in Miami next September, she will still run for Tecumseh Vista Academy during the local, regional and provincial track championships next Spring.
