Nestor just announced her verbal commitment to further her athletic and academic career at Kent State University in Ohio. She was one of 16 other athletes that advanced to the NCHSAA 4A Indoor State Championship Meet last year.

“I’m looking forward to making my senior season as fun and successful as it can be. I want to push myself and my teammates to leave their comfort zone and see what we are capable of on the track,” says Nestor.

The Gators will continue their season by attending the SWAC Polar Bear meet hosted by the Cary Imps on December 7th and 8th with various events on each day. On Saturday, December 10th, the Gators will compete at the COROS Explore Perfection Invite meet. They have also registered to attend the Virginia Beach Relay meet to stride into the new year, on January 6th-7th. 

We wish them the best of luck as they prepare to compete throughout the next few weeks!
