Hebe joined her local athletics club at the age of 7 competing in the heptathlon. At the time, she also played field hockey. Just three years ago she started to train at RTC ATR in Rotterdam and quickly after that she switched clubs to join PAC and to focus exclusively on (mid) distance. She has made quick progress and had multiple successes including two bronze medals at Dutch junior indoor and outdoor Nationals in the 3000m and another 3rd place U18 at the Abdijcross in 2020, which is a competitive XC race with a strong field.
Hebe is a very hard worker and an athlete who perseveres. Even when things aren’t going smoothly mid-race, she keeps the right mindset and pushes through instead of giving up. She is consistent and knows how to run tactical races and how to deal with setbacks. These setbacks also keep her motivated and Hebe is using this experience to make her a stronger and better athlete overall. Additionally, Hebe is working to improve her self-confidence and learning to push her limits. We strongly believe that Hebe can run faster times when she becomes a more confident runner, and a strong and ambitious college track & field team can help her grow her self-confidence and become faster.
Her primary goals in the USA are to perform at her absolute best in both athletics and academics. Thus, she is very driven both athletically and academically and is looking for a strong Track & Field team, but also for an academic program that will challenge her.
Her current PB’s include:
800m: 2.20,61 (2021)
1500m: 4:43,54 (2021)
3000m: 10:38,45 (2022)2000m SC: 7:16,41 (2022)
Hebe is enrolled in the highest level of high school in The Netherlands (VWO) and has a 4.0 GPA. She is expected to graduate in the Spring of 2023. Hebe is looking to do a major in Biology, Physics or Math.
