Part of the news release from Arizona State on Devan Coon
Coon is a four-time all-state performer for Schuylkill Valley High School (Leesport, Pa.) and will return for her senior year as the defending state champion at 400m, which she won in a state-record time of 55.46, just three weeks after running her first competitive open 400m. An all-state honoree in the 200m dash (2005-07) and 400m dash (2007), Coon also holds the PIAA District 3-AA and Burks County record in the 200m dash at 24.41. A qualifier for the Junior Olympic meet each of the past four years, Coon placed among the Top 6 in a pair of events
at the 2007 USATF Youth Outdoor Nationals as she placed fourth in the 400m dash, in which she lowered her personal best time to 55.17, and sixth in the 200m dash.
"Within minutes of meeting Devan on her official visit, I could feel the passion and excitement she will bring to our program," Kenny McDaniel, ASU assistant coach for women's sprints/hurdles/relays, said. "With her abilities, I believe Devan can become a strong member on our 4x400m relay team as well as adding a great deal of depth to the individual sprint events."
