Senior bios: Niles’ Sophia Hover

Sophia Hover is a senior on the Niles track team.

Activities: Track, golf, softball, cheer and Key Club.

Hobbies: Listening to music, hanging with friends and spending time at the lake.

My favorite track memory: Breaking the school record for women’s pole vault my sophomore year and then breaking my own record junior year.

Future plans: I will be attending Michigan State University. I plan to major in anthropology while minoring in archaeology.

Advice to underclassmen: Live in the moment. Give it your all every single time. Before you know it, it’s all over. So, make memories with your team, work hard at each practice, take pictures and enjoy the little moments.

How have your been making the best of being quarantined? I have been spending time with my family, and preparing for college.
