Brandeis School of Law grad wins gold at modern pentathlon championship

Stacy Anne Hoehle, a graduate of the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, won a gold medal at the USA Modern Pentathlon National Championship contested June 5-7 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Modern pentathlon is comprised of fencing, swimming, equestrian show jumping, and a combined event of pistol shooting and cross country running. Modern pentathlon has been part of the Olympic Games since its invention in 1912 by Baron Pierre du Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games.

Hoehle was one of the 34 athletes who competed — 13 women from across the U.S. and Canada who vied for national titles on June 5 and 21 men who competed on June 6. The individual athletes were categorized into junior, senior, and masters divisions.

Hoehle won the women’s masters event, which includes competitors age 30 and older. She qualified for the national competition by winning the women’s senior division of the Peachtree Regional Pentathlon on March 7 in Atlanta.

Hoehle competes for Atlanta Team Pentathlon.

Hoehle earned her J.D. from the University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law in 2007. She received a B.A. in Economics and Government from Centre College in 2004. Hoehle resides in Indianapolis and works in contracting at Roche, a biotechnology company.
