Salute To Seniors: Jamika Glades - Dillard


What was your most memorable race?
My most memorable race was the 300 meter hurdles at states this year. My time of 41.79 was beyond my goal of 42 low.

What would you consider your biggest competition?

I would consider the clock to be my biggest competition. Every race I think about running against time.

Out of all of your high school accomplishments which stands out the most?

My high school accomplishment that stands out the most is my dedication and hard work towards the sport of track and field. My dedication paid off BIG TIME!

If you could do it all over again what would you change about your running career in high school?

If I could do it all over again, I would have worked harder at dedicating myself during my freshman and sophomore years.

What were the most difficult obstacles you had to overcome?

The most difficult obstacles I had to overcome are being a teen-mom as well as a student-athlete.

What will you miss the most?

I am going to miss all of my teammates and coaches. We were all like a family and had much fun with each other.

Do you have any advice for younger athletes? 

Always give your 100% at every positive aspect in life. If you want to be elite you have to train to be elite. Always remember: HARD WORK PAYS OFF!
What are your college plans?
I will be attending the University of Miami majoring in accounting. I am going to continue to excel in both athletics and academics.  

Who would you like to say thank you to?

I would like to say thank you to everyone who has supported me, especially my aunt, Kelly Johnson, and my coach, Davidson Gill. They both guided me to the success I have accomplished in these past two years. I couldn’t thank them enough for all the time and effort that they have put into me.
