Trinity Bibbs has wasted no time in making an impact on the sprints scene during Ohio's indoor season.
The freshman from Wayne-Huber Heights has taken on an active schedule and she's quickly gaining big race experience that'll no doubt pay dividends when the competition heats up as the road to the OATCCC state meet continues.
With marks out of the gate of 7.86 for the 60, 26.16 in the 200 and 1:00.01 in the 400, the natural talent is obviously there. It's more than that, though.
"She's a sponge when it comes to taking advice on how to improve her mechanics and her technique," said coach Mike Fernandez.
"Her genetics are there, but she's also very coachable and she wants to get better every day," said the veteran Warriors coach.
Bibbs is no stranger to success. She was the middle school state champion in the 100, the 200 and the 4x100m relay last outdoor season and was instrumental in helping to lead Wayne MS to the team championship.
"Sprinting runs in the family for Bibbs. She's the daughter of former high school standouts Brandon Bibbs (Dunbar) and Kikia Wilson, who competed for Colonel White High School (Upper Dayton View), which closed back in 2008," said Fernandez.
Next up for Bibbs will be the Wittenberg Open, scheduled for Sunday in Springfield.
