Finalists’ voice: “During my athletic career I have been fortunate to be coached by many different people across the entire country. The coach with the biggest influence has been my coach from Carthage (N.Y.). Coach Bryan Zevotek taught me that limits for my body are as far as my mind will let it go.”
