CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Covenant's Hallie Reese is headed to JMU to compete in Track and Field.

She had her ceremonial signing Friday at Covenant in front of family and friends.

Reese has been a standout performer in high school in both the discus and shot put.

She was the VISAA state champion this past season in the indoor shot put and runner-up in the outdoor discus throw.

Reese has been recruited by JMU primarily to compete in the hammer throw.    An event she's never competed in.

"Because hammer is only in college so I'm excited to try something new and learn new footwork," says Reese.   "Have an opportunity to learn something.  I'm sure there will be lots of fails but hopefully it will work out and I like doing something new. I think coach McCown is going to teach me so we're ready to start on day one so I'm excited.
