Alumni Spotlight Iesha Boyd – Track & Field

This week we recognize an amazing student-athlete alumna, Iesha Boyd who was part of the Women’s Track & Field team from 2012-2014 before transferring to CSU Stanislaus. During her time at Hartnell, she broke the record for the women’s 400m run on May 10, 2014, finishing the race in 55.68 seconds! Iesha continues to be an active part of Hartnell; she contributes every year to the Hartnell Track & Field Summer Camps by coaching and training campers. Iesha was also a Hartnell camper herself; she was introduced to the college at age 10 by coming to the Track & Field summer camp. “I like to come back to the camps because it gives me an opportunity to promote Track events to the younger generation in our community,” explained, Iesha. Boyd continues to train and dreams of participating in the Olympics one day. “I want to thank and recognize Coach Zepeda and Coach Barbara, they always respected me and my limitations but also pushed me to continue challenging myself,” said Iesha.
