Aiyana Ferraro, 14, started mushing about five
years ago and says she has wanted to be a musher
since she was three years old and watched Balto.
She has been racing since she was 13 and this year
placed 10th in the Flathead Sled Dog Days and third
in the Darby Dog Derby. She attends Corvallis
Middle School and participates in math counts and
track. She also enjoys drawing, agility and
obedience with her Aussie/Border Collie mix,
running and computer graphics. She says she is the
only one in her family who mushes. I was the
youngest person ever to run the 100 mile Jr. Race
to the Sky. Next year I plan on running the Jr.
Iditarod, the Wyoming Stage Stop, Jr. Race to the
Sky and many other races. After high school, Aiyana
wants to move to Alaska or Wyoming and take
veterinarian and astronomy classes in college and
continue running her sled dogs.
