My biggest challenge this season has been being a competitive athlete in our improving conference while also being a coach to my fellow throwing buddies and myself.2. If you could attach anything to the end of your hammer throw wire, what would it be and why?
I would attach my heavy, ancient laptop to the end of the hammer wire!

3. Do you have any plans for after graduation?
My English bulldog Mac and I will be heading to Duke in August, where I will be enrolled in the Medical Physics graduate program.

My favorite athlete is Adam Nelson because he is a very intelligent man who has accomplished a lot through very hard training. And he is drug free. He is also a very exciting athlete to watch compete.

I will miss my teammates both on and off the track and field. I am grateful for all of the memories that I have with them!
