Ruby Blackwell Quotes
As a freshman on your first outdoor national stage, how does it feel? It is just blowing my mind. I cant say that I did it all by myself. I mean my coaches and my teammates, they had my back all year. They really pushed me to keep me on track.
As a freshman, what was your thought process coming in? I would just pray, go out and stretch, pray, and then go out and stretch some more. I would then go out and clear my mind of everything else, and just focus on what I learned in practice. It turned out well.
