Batenhorst, Janda soaring on track

Originally Appeared on VYPE

When the names Ally Batenhorst and Morgan Janda are thrown around in conversation, it usually pertains to volleyball.

The duo helped get Seven Lakes to the UIL State Volleyball Tournament two years ago and this past season made another deep run in the playoffs. But this spring, the pair is showing off their hops on the track.

Batenhorst and Janda both have qualified for the regional track meet after finishing third and second, respectively, on Thursday in the event.

"I started high jumping in seventh grade and I was not very good because I was really short," Janda said. "Once I got into high school I grew some more and got better at it.

"Track is definitely way different than volleyball, because it's individual. Volleyball is all team all the time."

Janda is signed to Sam Houston State for volleyball but will also be high jumping there as well.

"That's one of the main school's I've been talking to since the eighth grade," Janda said. "Then they found out I could high jump too and they said they'd let me."

For Batenhorst, high jumping has been a part of her routine ever since getting into high school.

The highly touted volleyball recruit – already verbally committed to Nebraska – sees the advantages to doing this in the offseason of her high school season.

The Houston Texans have a massive decision to make when it comes to selecting a young QB in the draft that will hopefully become the face of the franchise.

NFL Draft expert Lance Zierlein believes there is a significant gap between Bryce Young and the next QB (CJ Stroud)that will be available. And another big drop-off between Stroud and Will Levis.

So does that mean the Texans should be aggressive and go after Bryce Young at all costs?

Plus, how does this group of QBs stack up to Trevor Lawrence when he was a prospect?

Be sure to check out the video above as Zierlein breaks it all down!
