Question: During the fall semester you completed your student teaching. How did that impact your training? What did you do to adjust to the schedule change?
Question: You specialize in the jumps (Long Jump, Triple Jump and High Jump). Do you favor one event over another?
Ney: I favor one event over another whenever I start performing better in a particular event. For example, last year I struggled in all three events throughout the season which in the end simply made me work harder knowing that I may actually perform to my best eventually (at the end of the season it was definitely the triple jump).
Question: You’ve had a successful career as a student-athlete at Richmond. What are your most memorable moments?
Ney: My most memorable moment is definitely winning my first collegiate event at the Lou Onesty Challenege at UVA. I broke my own personal record by 2 or 3 inches and, honestly, I never expected to jump that high ever, which only made it more exciting. I have also really enjoyed running on so many different relays with so many different teammates over the years.
Question: Has anyone outside of Richmond impacted or influenced your career leading to your competitiveness and success?
