Four-time state champion, Jizelle Holland is looking for big times and an additional six state titles this weekend at the VISAA Championships. The crazy thing is, she is only in the 8th grade! 

Jizelle Holland's Athlete Profile 

If that names seems familiar, you're not alone. Her older sister, Micayah Holland, moved from Virginia down to Montverde Academy in Florida and currently sits at US #1 in the 100m dash with her 11.26 season best. 

Jizelle is right on his sister's track with personal bests equaling or coming close to the marks Micayah set back in 2019 as an 8th grader herself. Both also are star basketball players who split their time between the two sports during the winter. 

This upcoming weekend Jizelle is entered in the 100, 200, 400, and pole vault where she is the defending state champion. She is also entered in the long and triple jumps where she should battle for the title. She was second last year in the long jump. 

MileStat will be on-site with photo and video coverage this weekend.
