Marisa Howard graduated from Pasco High School in 2010. Howard was named to the Team USA track & field roster for the Pan American Games in Peru last month. She picked up a silver medal in the women's 3,000-meter chase. She was mere seconds away from gold.

Howard went to college at Boise State and still resides in Boise.

Howard is currently training for The Match, where American and European athletes will be competing in a variety of events.

The former Bulldog turned Bronco hopes to be in Tokyo next summer for the 2020 Olympics. We'll be rooting for her every step of the way.
