Sheldon High School senior Logan Lamb is hopeful she can journey to Australia in July in order to compete in the 2016 Down Under Sports Track and Field Meet.

If everything goes as planned, Lamb, who is a standout in the Shot Put and Discus, will travel to Los Angeles in early-July, where she would then depart with Team USA to Brisbane, Australia for the nine-day competition. From Brisbane, she would fly to Hawaii for three days before returning home July 12.

Lamb said she is in the process of trying to raise $6,377 in order to make the trip a reality. So far, Lamb said she has raised $500. According to Lamb, all proceeds go to Down Under Sports.

"I am very passionate about going because this a huge opportunity and will open many doors for me," Lamb said. "It will also allow me to travel the world and see new things. I am so excited to get to experience the culture and see how beautiful it is."

According to the website,

"The 2015 Down Under Sports Track and Field Meet was held July 10-12 and was nothing short of spectacular. The theme was USA vs. The World with track clubs from Australia and other nations represented. When the dust had settled after three hard days of competition and the points from every single event in every age group were added up, the total combined team scores were: Team USA at 1,288.5 and The World with 1,205.5."
