Morgan Fey made the most of her first appearance at UIL state track. The San Antonio Southwest junior started Friday with a bronze medal in the 5A shot put (40 feet, 5.75 inches) and added a gold medal in the classification’s discus event (137 feet, nine inches) by day’s end.

“Once I made it to state, it was already an accomplishment in itself,” said Fey. “So, I just wanted to commit my heart out to where it could take me.”

You can credit some of Fey’s skill to her mother. Jo Ann, who currently has an administrative role in Southwest ISD, was a shot putter at Southwest High School before continuing her athletic career at SMU.

“She’s taught me everything I know,” Morgan said of her mother. “Down to competing [and] what you need to do when you’re warming up. She’s a great role model.”

Fey’s been in discussions with multiple college programs about competitive opportunities beyond high school, and is currently planning out her offseason so she can add to her resume as a senior.

“Definitely hit the weight room more this summer and get ripped,” said Morgan. “Overall, get strong [and] get better at what I’m doing. That’s all I can hope for.”
