Macala Hood knows the value of hard work.  Throughout her High School career, she has balanced school work with practices and competitions in three sports, all while living on a ranch raising goats for 4-H and FFA shows and fairs.  She is the definition of a hard working, ranch kid. 

Her work has payed off,  as Macala has signed to continue her education and compete in track and field, at Mount Marty University .  She plans to major in Pre-Veterinary Studies and will compete on the Lancer indoor and outdoor track & field teams.  At AHS, Macala took part in cross country, basketball and track & field.  She was also very active in 4-H and FFA.   At Mount Marty she will focus on the hurdle events. 

Mount Marty University is located in Yankton, South Dakota. It is an NAIA school and a member of the Great Plains Athletic Conference.  Macala is the daughter of Colleen and Robb Hood of Lakeside.
