LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

An impressive Texas Tech student is preparing to graduate Saturday, before heading to Switzerland in just three weeks to compete in the Powerman Duathlon.

22-year-old Jenna Hay will graduate with a degree in agricultural communications.

Jenna qualified for the Duathlon after participating in a triathlon in Dallas last fall.

This race starts with a six-mile run, followed by a 93-mile bike ride up and down the Swiss Alps, before it's topped off with another 18-mile run.

Despite the hardship, Jenna says she is excited about the challenge.

"I'm going into this race with a mindset of just being thankful that I have this opportunity, I'm praising God with it, thanking my family. And I'm just going in to hopefully enjoy myself, to not get injured, and to have the race of a lifetime," Hay said.

Jenna will lead her college into tomorrow's ceremony as the banner bearer for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
