GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -In high school, she ran like a Bobcat. In college, Gabriella Figueroa will have to go at ramming speed.

The Buchholz High School sprinter signed to run track at Albany State on Thursday. The Golden Rams are a Division II program based in Albany, Georgia.

Figueroa competed in the 100, 200, and 400 meters while in high school. As a college runner, she’ll be more geared towards the 200, 400, and 800 meters.

Figueroa is delighted about the growth she experienced in high school both athletically and personally.

“I came in here as a freshman not knowing anybody and coming out knowing all these people that came, all this support, I’m very honored and proud,” said Figueroa.
