Q: How did it feel to qualify for the state championship in Shot Put?

A: It means a lot to me because I know I can throw to the best of my ability. It is super hard doing the shot put, and there is a certain number you need to qualify.

Q: How does track help you with other sports in which you participate?

A: Track helps me with sprinting so I can stay in shape. I try to keep myself busy until soccer season, working on my strength.

Q: What has your time at Swansboro High School meant to you?

A: I love the support and respect that we get from our principal, coaches and staff. They are very positive, and there is no other school that I can really see myself at.

Q: Who is your favorite athlete and why?

A: I always looked up to Alex Morgan on the United States national team. There is something in her [a passion when playing] that other players don’t have.
