Getting to Know Haley...
I enjoy listening to: Country Music.
Who's had the biggest influence on your sports career and why: Landon Harris. He was one of my coaches in middle school and he taught me what it meant to give my all to a sport. He taught me that if you want to be the best at something it was more than practice and talent; it was about heart. I have had a passion for swimming since I was young and he taught me how to use that passion in practice and in races. He was a major part of how I became the swimmer I am today.
