Not sure if she has ever thought about trying this by Sonoma Academy’s Kiana Herold seems to have the making of a good Heptathlete.
In track the heptathlon is made up of seven events, contested over two days.
Day 1: 100m hurdles, High jump, Shot put, 200m.
Day 2: Long jump, Javelin throw, 800m.
Herold would often do the maximum events allowed in a single days meet at four.
At this years Coastal Mountain Conference she won all four events.
(LJ 16-2, HJ 5-4, 100HH 17.17 and 300LH 48.69)
