Quote

"A lot of the races I ran this year, I was pacing myself off of other people, which was a mistake on my part. I want to focus on my race for the first half and see where I am with 200 left. This year, I've learned not to put too much pressure on myself, which builds up a lot of anxiety and nerves. I want to focus more and leave it all in God's hands. I'm really excited for this. I've been looking to run 49 (seconds) and it just hasn't happened, but hopefully, I can do it at nationals."

"I'm thrilled and so excited to go. I can't wait. We've been working on my press, trying to drive into the pit a little bit more. My swing has gotten a lot better this year, so we want to couple that with my press and try and get the best vault going at nationals."

Quote

"I'm very excited and shocked that I made it. It's the first time I've ever PRed at the end of a season, so that's a good thing. Last year, I thought about the race way too much and didn't have my best performance, so I don't want to think too much this year and we'll see what happens."

"I'm hoping to do well this year and get in that top eight. I usually get nervous for big meets, but I've done a better job this year of using those nerves to help me throw further. We've been working hard on my technique this year and I feel like I'm ready to have a good performance at nationals."
