Star-Tribune Profiles Sade Pollard

A day after we noticed that the Duluth paper had profiled defending MSHSL Class AA 100m champ Garrett Cora of Duluth East, we see that the Star-Tribune's John Millea has written a nice piece on St. Paul Harding super-sprinter Sade Pollard.

Pollard won the Class AA 100, 200, and 400 meters last year as a sophomore. She also won the 200 and 400 in her 9th-grade year.

Pollard, we learn, owes a lot to coach Henry Combs, whom she refers to a "dad." Combs discovered Pollard in 4th-grade.

"I could see the stride, I could see the hunger," he told the Star-Tribune. "She didn't back down."
