I'm going to go to Stanford and to Seattle to compete, indoor facilities in Austin, Texas and Washington," Rigsby says. "I'm so excited to start. it's an honor. I just feel honored that they want to be a part of their program and I'm going to get to go to all these places and compete in the sport I love. I don't know, it's crazy. it's so exciting to me."
