Thank you for going to my meets, sitting in the rain, and watching me run in circles. Thank you to all my teammates who have pushed me day in and day out to be the best version of me. Lastly, thank you to every single coach who has pushed me along the way, encouraged me, and never stopped believing in me. I want to thank coach Schwegler for this opportunity. I can’t wait to start a new chapter at Truman State University. Go Bulldogs.”
