Stephanie Meyer Speech Pathology Major
"I was extremely excited about qualifying for the NCAA Division II National Indoor Track and Field Championships, and almost didn't believe that I actually made it. I had been to States in high school but I never thought I would have the opportunity to compete with the best athletes in the entire nation.
"I did not do the best that I could have when I was at Nationals, but I was still excited to place 14. It was my first national competition and, as a freshman, I was so nervous. Even though I didn't do my best, it was such an amazing experience seeing the talent of the other athletes and just learning overall from the experience.
"My goal is just to keep improving, and hopefully to make it to nationals again in my college track and field career. It really was such an awesome experience and I would love to be able to have the opportunity to compete again with the most elite athletes in the nation."
