"Adriana in only two seasons, has established herself as one of the greatest sprinters in New Mexico's history. Tatum finished her season undefeated in regular season competition and capped it off with a first place finish at the Great Southwest Classic against some of the best high school sprinters in the country. Every time Adriana graces the track, fans know there's a chance of something special taking place."
