After an amazing college career, which was proceeded by signing a professional contract with New Balance, we haven't heard much from Jenny. Now married and having changed her last name from Barringer to Simpson, the Oviedo High alum is back in action after a 7-month layoff due to a hip injury. And apparently is doing just fine!
After sitting out much of the 2010 season with a stress reaction injury, Jen Barringer, now Jen Simpson, will make her indoor season debut at the New Balance Games Saturday, Jan. 22.
Claudia Francis has plenty going on. The Cardozo senior competed in three track meets in five days ending Monday at the MLK Relays. She has a final exam tomorrow in science class and she still needs to make a decision on where she will compete in college next year.
