Quotable: "I was excited, it was relief, it was joy and I was overcome with emotion. I flash backed on my track career as I was signing. They have really small classes and I knew I wasn't just going to be a number. But what put them over the top for me was that they have a track and field program and Southeastern doesn't. It felt like home and somewhere that I could be really accepted." — Lexus Gainey.
