Ida Baker student-athlete Amanda Gross has been nominated for the Ultimate Athlete competition being conducted over the last eight months by USA?TODAY High School Sports and Asics.

Gross, who was selected as one of the 100 finalists, was nominated because of her national rankings in volleyball, her competitiveness in ROTC Raiders and previous record-setting achievements in track and other sports.

The UA competition finalists were selected by a panel formed by USA TODAY and pared down and placed into eight regions. There are a total of three rounds - regional, semifinal and final. The top two vote getters from each region advance to the semifinal.

While being in the top 100 athletes in the nation is a great achievement, and one of just five Floridians in the finals, her school's athletic programs can earn money during the final voting process.

Time is short as the first voting deadline is Dec. 6. Site visitors can read athlete bios and athletic achievements by clicking on their name.
