COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) recently announced that New Mexico State women's track and field senior thrower Randi Grimes has been named the annual All-American Strength and Condition Athlete of the Year.
Grimes was nominated by New Mexico State strength coach Tony McClure and he said that he is very proud that Grimes won the award.
"The Amazing Randi is an inspiration to her teammates and to other athletes at NM State," McClure said.  "Her dedication and technical proficiency in the lifts have no equal.  Randi is "Captain" of the track and field team." 
Assistant coach Paul Harkins agreed that Grimes is an amazing athlete and is very deserving of the award.
"I think that Randi is exceptional," Harkins said.  "She is very hard working in the weight room, on the track and in the classroom.  It is great for her to be recognized."
Last season, Grimes set the school record in the javelin throw with a mark of 154-4 and also etched her name into second place on NM State’s all-time record list in the hammer throw with a mark of 179-1.
This year the NSCA awarded 207 collegiate athletes from 116 schools with this esteemed award.  The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 30th year and is made possible by a grant from Power Systems, Inc., a Knoxville, Tenn. Fitness product leader.
