    Perry’s Chloe Haase commits to Cleveland State

    - Advertisment -

    Perry senior Chloe Haase hit the double jackpot when she committed to continue her education and track career at Cleveland State University.

    Not only did she lock up her opportunity to compete at the Division I level, but she’s also following in her father Jeff’s footsteps as he played baseball for the Vikings.

    “It is super exciting to have the opportunity to run at the next level. It definitely shows all the hard work I put in over the past couple of years,” Haase said. “I think what led me there the most was how nice the campus was and that my dad played baseball there as well.”

    Haase is expected to compete in the 100-meter hurdles and the sprint events when she suits up at Cleveland State.

    Last spring, she placed fifth at the Division II district meet in the 100-meter hurdles, missing a berth in the regional meet by one second, and she ran a personal record time of 17.98 seconds at the Jim Green Invitational.

    “I think that I can step up to that next level,” Haase said. “I just need to be confident in what I’m doing and leave it all out there.”

    Heading into her senior season at Perry, Haase hopes to punch her ticket to the regional meet, and maybe even the state meet, while also trimming time from her PRs.

    “I’m hoping that I can make it farther in the postseason than I have in the past and I want to beat my PR that I set in the postseason as a junior,” she said.

    Haase also has competed in the 300-meter hurdles (55.57), high jump (4 feet, 3 inches), and long jump (13-2.25).
