Shay Nielson   Track Class of 1985

Very few times in a coaching career does one have the opportunity to have such a gifted and talented student-athlete as Shay Nielson. Her speed, jumping ability, and fearless attitude made her a dominant competitor, in both hurdles and jumping events. She was the State Champion in the 300 M hurdles BOTH her junior and senior years. She placed second in the long jump at the State meet in her sophomore, junior and senior years. She graduated from Hanford High school (HHS) holding seven (7) track records, in addition to playing three years of Varsity basketball. Shay went on to Boise State University, where she continued to compete in track as a student-athlete. Shay is a fine example of a Falcon student-athlete.
