UNC track and field athlete Jill Shippee went from being one of the top throwers in the NCAA to dead last. During the first round of the NCAA, Shippee fouled out and was disqualified.
In this podcast, Jill talks about how she got into throwing, what led her to UNC, what happened at the NCAA, and how the community of student athletes on campus helped her get over her loss.
This season, she is working to put the past behind her and regain her championship status.
