Randy Ward: "The Junior from Marble Falls has done very well at Angelo State. Gray finished second at the LSC Outdoor Championships last season in the Heptathlon, and finished second at the NCAA Indoor Championships earlier this season in the Pentathlon. Even with all of her individual success, Gray understand that Track is a team sport."
Jordan Gray: "People don't think of track as a team sport but it completely is. Just the community of Heptathlets you push each other, you feed off each other. If you do well in this event, it pushes you to do well in the next event."
Ward: "As a team, the Rambelles have won the last 5 Lone Star Conference Outdoor Championships, and Gray doesn't plan on letting that streak end anytime soon."
Gray: "We're looking to repeat for the sixth time being conference champions, so we're getting excited for that."
Ward: "May 1st will be the start of the LSC Championships at Texas A&M Kingsville, so with just over a week before competition, ASU is starting to make sure all athletes are rested and ready for a title run."
Gray: "Right now we're kind of tapering off training wise, getting prepared, getting our bodies rested. Mentally it's all about focusing on just the event you're doing right then. If you think about all three days it gets a little overwhelming. If you really focus on what am I going to do in High Jump and then Shot Put and then the 200 and then the next day. It's really about staying focused and encouraging your teammates, so mentally just preparing for that."
You can hear more from Jordan this coming Sunday Night at 10:35 on KLST with their Angelo State Season Pass Program.
