Coach John Kuskoski’s quote: “She is a hard-working individual. Very self-disciplined. She would not be where she is right now if she did not take on the in-between training. She ran actively during the summer. That was a big plus for her. Her worth ethic, her discpline are big. A very conscientious, sincere individual. It is her best quality.
