This is Gross' first trip to indoor nationals, but is her second nationals overall. She competed in the heptathlon at last year's NCAA outdoor championships in Turlock, Calif., placing 13th.

Schumacher, Anderson, Davis and Fricker compete Friday, while Worthen, Gross and Grandy compete Saturday. Fricker will run on Saturday if she can get past Friday's preliminary heats.
