It was in the chilly low 40s when this year’s Hooprolling race began, but it didn’t stop a crowd of devoted “littles” from saving spots for their “bigs” … and it didn’t slow down Sophia Garcia ’15 (below), this year’s winner.
Garcia benefited from a choice spot secured by her little, Catherine Baltazar ’16, and rolled a hoop—named “The Ring of Fire”—handed down from her big, Lina Torres ’13. “To cross the finish line knowing that my little and big have supported me throughout my Wellesley career will always make my heart feel full,” says Garcia, an environmental studies major.
After graduation, Garcia planned to return to her hometown of Bakersfield, Calif., where she will work for environmental consulting company Quad Knopf as part of the geographic information systems team.
