Going into the 2014-15 academic year, I figured it was going to be hard for HepsNation to top the success they produced during the 2013-14 seasons. But going back through the stories, results, and news we’ve posted during the 2014-15 time frame, I realized that while we may not have succeeded in besting 2013-14 in terms of numbers, but HepsNation still excelled nonetheless.
How good was HepsNation? Here’s my list:
On top of that, we got to share of some stories of behind the scenes at TrackTown USA, father-son competition, a fun Twitter challenge between a HepsNation pro and one of the best athletes in the NBA, correcting the record books in regards to wind-readings, sharing our personal perspectives at the Penn Relays (a six part series, starting here), alumni making a difference for some New England middle schoolers, an Olympic double medalist making the Track & Field Hall of Fame, and making convincing arguments on why NCAA Championships need to be brought back to Philadelphia. There are plenty more things that we shared throughout the year – have fun looking back through the webpages and enjoy the reading.
We will continue to dive back into the 2014-15 season over these next few days as we recognize some of the best athletes and performances among the levels of rookies, track, field, and alumni. It has been a bit of challenge to narrow the field, but I feel that the resulting honors will provide a good summary of what kind of year it has been.
