Griz All American: Lindsey Hall

Posted: Updated:
Lindsey Hall's career as a Montana track and field athlete has been a memorable one, from huge expectations, early success, and injuries, to finishing at the top by placing 7th at the National meet in the Heptathlon was certainly a fitting ending.

"This year has probably been the most enjoyable year in track and it's not just because of the accolades of accomplishments.  I've recognized and taken a step back and realized I'm in it because I love the sport, I'm passionate about it, and it's a platform for me to do other things.  As I've recognized that, I've decided to stick in it, and continue training for next year's USA's or other meets that may fall before then," says Hall
 
While her career will continue past college, she looks back fondly on her time spent with the Grizzlies.
 
"Essentially, since I was born and raised in Missoula, I felt so much support for track and field which is not as popular as other sports, so having that support from my high school friends, and family and teachers, it is something really special, and of course this team and these coaches are some one I don't think I could have found anywhere else," says Hall.
 
She's Montana's first ever Multi-Sport All-American, and with graduation in the rear-view mirror, Hall will continue competing in track and field…which will mean traveling to Europe in the short-term, and potential relocation down the line, which will be a new experience for the Missoula Big Sky Graduate.  
 
"I've always joked as a 23 year old who lived here for 23 years that I was ready for it, but coming back from Eugene and having that bittersweet moment that the door was closing, thinking that in two weeks I'm off to Europe to check out a new adventure and pursue track and mission work.  I'll miss Missoula, but I think I'll always return to it," says Hall.
 
On July 1st, Hall will head to Belgium and compete for Athletes in Action, a Christian based organization, while doing outreach, and competing in five different running, jumping, and throwing events.
