ANADARKO, OKLA. – Former Pueblo of Acoma resident Tyvon Leno, along with his family, moved to Anadarko, Okla., early on in his educational career.
Today, he is considered one of the best juvenile cross-country runners in Oklahoma.
Leno attends Riverside Indian School in Anadarko.
This year when he attended the Oklahoma State Cross-Country Meet, he managed to place first overall in all of the 3A division runs, making him the All Star State Champion in Oklahoma.
He holds an astounding record time of eight minutes and 21 seconds in the one-and-one-half-mile run.
This success wasn’t too surprising to some, however.
Back in 2009, the Red Grounds, a team that Leno ran for, took first place overall in the Oklahoma state meet, with a total time of 11 minutes and 36 seconds.
Family members of Leno’s acknowledged that besides his great success in sports, he is excelling in academics at Riverside, making it that much more impressive that Leno can maintain his Champion status, while making good grades.
When asked about his recent triumphs since moving to Anadarko, Leno said,
“I am very glad I came to Riverside with my other siblings. I enjoy the school and my peers.”
