Stacy Hoehle ’04 wins gold medal at USA Modern Pentathlon National Championship
Centre College students and alumni are known for their competitive nature, and for their high achievement when tackling challenges head-on. Stacy Hoehle ’04 recently won a gold medal in the women’s masters event at the USA Modern Pentathlon National Championship, held over three days in June at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hoehle was the 2014 women’s masters division national champion at this competition last year.
Modern pentathlon is comprised of fencing, swimming, equestrian show jumping and a combined event of pistol shooting and cross-country running. It has been a core sport of the Olympic Games since its invention in 1912.
Hoehle, who majored in economics and government, has competed in pentathlons both in the United States and abroad. She won her first international pentathlon in Toronto, Canada, in January 2014 and went on to finish sixth in the World Master Modern Pentathlon Championships in Germany in September of that same year.
Hoehle qualified for the national competition by winning the women’s senior division of the Peachtree Regional Pentathlon in Atlanta, Ga., in March. She was one of 34 athletes who competed in the National Championship in Colorado Springs and won the women’s masters event.
Hoehle competes for Atlanta Team Pentathlon, a modern pentathlon organization in Georgia.
After graduating from Centre, Hoehle received a J.D. from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. She currently resides in Indianapolis and works in contracting at Roche, the largest biotechnology company in the world.
