Biggest sports thrill: "Last year at state I won the long jump, but I didn't know I had won until I got to the podium because I thought the (2nd place) girl had won."
Best advice I've ever received: "No pressure, no diamonds."
Last week: At the Harry Burchell Classic City/County meet, Heaton won the 300 hurdles (46.03), the long jump (17-2) and anchored the winning 4x400 relay squad. She also took second in the 110 hurdles as the Warriors took the team title.
Heaton on her performance: "I've been really excited for this season because we're really friendly with each other and we have a lot of good talent. At City/County a lot of girls stepped up. (As a senior) I decided this year I would try to make it fun for the rest of the team, but then there's the pressure of 'Oh, I can't get beat by a sophomore,' so I have to step up even more."
Coach Ryan Ortega on Heaton: "Last year she won the state heptathlon at BYU. She's always been a hard worker. She's really good at keeping people motivated and cares a lot about how the rest of the team does. She's always focused at practice and meets."
After high school: "I have a scholarship to do the heptathlon for Utah Valley (University). I want to major in photography and minor in business."
