4A THE sUPERIOR EXPRESS Thursday, February 13, 2014 Alex Meyer signs letter of intent to attend UN-L Alex Meyer, a senior at Superior High School, has signed her scholar- ship letter of intent to attend the Uni- versity of Nebraska-Lincoln where she will be a member of the track and field team. Meyer is the reigning Class C state discus champion and she took sixth place in the shot put. Meyer was courted by several schools, with UN-L and Kansas State at the top of her list. She paid official visits to both campuses and UN-L was her choice• She will enroll in August and live on campus. She will major in landscape architecture. Meyer began throwing the discus in grade school. Her only throwing coach has been her father, Andy. Meyer admits that volleyball is her first love but the discus is the key to her Division 1 dreams• She is currently playing basketball for Superior High School and is looking forward to the team making a deep playoffrun. When basketball season ends, she will have a short window for training for the sea- son opening Ed Weir Invitational meet. She has lofty expectations for this sea- son with the stated goal of setting the state meet record. Meyer follows a weight lifting regi- men but is not especially picky about her diet. She does not encounter any issues when transitioning from basket- ball to throwing though each requires the use of separate muscle sets. When asked about a rivalry be- tween her and her younger sister Leah, who also throws the discus, Meyer says no, with more than a hint of a smile on her face. Her plan is simple: keep improving and qualify for the BJ Ten me#t her freshman year. A lofty goal but one which she will no doubt fulfill. Meyer will open the track season at the Ed Weir Invitational meet at the Superior Community Track Saturday March 22.
