Sports Legend

Jayne Hahin, Class of 1984 

Jayne was destined for greatness as one of the best long distance runners Hamburg has ever seen, beginning in her freshman year of 1979 as she broke the school record in the mile. As a junior, Jayne captained the cross-country team, which for the first time in school history took first place at an ECIC meet held in Akron, with Jayne’s lead the team with 50 points. That same year, Jayne helped lead the team to take the Divisional Meet Champions of Division I, which achieved a school record 12-win season. During this season, Jayne set a new school record of 18:39 at the Chestnut Ridge Park 3.1 mile course. In 1983, Jayne broke her own school record by setting the Chestnut Ridge course record in an incredible 17 minutes, 31 seconds. She went on to represent Section VI as a member of the State Cross Country Team, and also broke a long distance record for the undefeated season of the outdoor track team, as well as breaking the indoor record in the 3000 meters by running it in 11:17.9.  As a senior, Jayne continued improving the school record in the mile, by breaking the 1500mm record in a blazing 4:41! In fact, her records in cross-country, mile and 2-mile still stand today. Jayne went on to competitively run in college at the University of Rochester, where she set records and captained the team in college. Today, Jayne lives in Sierra Nevada Mountains near Lake Tahoe, and owns her own computer engineering consulting firm.
