Jaclyn Greci had the days counted down.

It was Saturday, Feb. 29 and the Illinois State University women’s track and field team had just won the indoor championship of the Missouri Valley Conference. That was the Redbird’s third straight MVC title that was held at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. 

Greci, a 2017 Lockport Township High School graduate, and standout track and field athlete for the Porters, recalls the bus ride home was full of celebration and also a question.
