MSU Track Star Optimistic for Nationals

Posted: Updated:

It's not always how you draw it up. For Montana State's Grant Grosvenor, he was smitten with soccer, but then...

"When I was a freshman in high school, I broke part of my spine. Went to the Prefontaine Classic and decided I was going to be a runner." said Grosvenor.


The sophomore stuck with track, and after a great high school career right outside Seattle, came to MSU, where the weather's a little different, usually. 
"The mountains are beautiful. The weather is a lot colder. And it rains a lot less, as we're standing here in rain. " said Grosvenor.

"There's a real blend of speed and endurance. The 800 meters requires the speed of a 400 guy but it also requires the endurance of a miler. And those are the ends of the continuum that we've worked really hard with Grant." said MSU Head Track & Field Coach Dale Kennedy.

Grant's worked so hard, that he's one of two bobcats competing at Nationals in Eugene, running the 800 meters.

"This is a young man with a lot of talent but the other side is you can't just do it with talent alone. You have to have a great work ethic. He has a great work ethic." said Kennedy.

Only two years in, the expectations for Grant are big time.

"His career is going beyond the collegiate level I know that he has expectations that that's what's going to happen and almost always we get what we expect not what we want but what we expect." said Kennedy.
