HAMDEN — For years growing up, Kayla Cameron and her younger twin sisters Aliya Cameron and Meaghan Cameron competed in youth gymnastics.
They loved the sport, but Kayla Cameron wanted to do something different when she came to Sacred Heart Academy as a freshman. Because of her gymnastics training, she decided track and field was the best fit for her.
Soccer was another sport that Aliya Cameron and Meaghan Cameron competed in on the youth level. When they followed their sister to Sacred Heart Academy, they came to the school to play soccer. But they also wanted to play a sport in the winter and spring, and like Kayla, believed track and field was the way to go due to their gymnastics training.
