Naperville Central Track & Field senior sprinter D’Jenne Egharevba sat down with Naperville Sports Weekly’s Joe Olmo. The Redhawks are off to a solid start on the indoor circuit, winning two of three meets. The track star never planned on being this fast; Egharevba always thought she would play basketball in college. It was her basketball coaches that convinced her to go out for track in 7th grade.
She also chatted about the start to the indoor season and the difficulties of being a sprinter and having to train indoors without a field house. D’Jenne gets to spend some family time on the track as well, as her younger sister, Naomi, is also part of the team. Egharevba spoke highly of coach Mike Stine, calling him a second father. Egharevba will be attending Illinois State University in the fall, but in the meantime, the senior looks to make it four straight years heading to the state meet later this spring.
