PEPPERDINE TRACK 2014: Competed at seven meets as a freshman ... Ran a 12.76 twice in the 100 meters (Ben Brown, 3/15; and UC Irvine, 3/21) ... Best in the 200 was 26.66 (Cal Poly, 3/29) ... Ran on the fastest 4x100 and 4x200-meter relay teams of the season.

HIGH SCHOOL: Graduated from Highland High School, located in Gilbert, Ariz., in 2013 ... Ran three years of varsity track ... Ran the 100 and 200 meters ... Helped Highland to finish as the Division I state runner-up in 2012 ... Served as Student Body President and was a member of the National Honor Society.

PERSONAL: Born in Philadelphia, Pa. ... Daughter of Ray and Darice Ellis ... Her father played football at Ohio State and in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns ... Has one brother, Jamison ... Majoring in business administration ... Chose to attend Pepperdine because it was "my dream school since 2006. I loved the location, the study-abroad program, the Christian values and its academic reputation. I knew in my hear that I could see myself there and as soon as I stepped foot on the campus, I knew I made the right decision."

FAVORITES: Enjoys traveling and baking ... Favorites include the Philadelphia Eagles (pro sports team), The Hills (TV show), Beyonce (musical artist), pink Starburst (food) and tennis (sport other than running) ... Favorite thing about running is "every day you have the opportunity to push yourself farther than the day before, and have a great support system with you along the way."
