Bella has been a wonderful asset to our team. She works hard at every drill, exercise, and game, and has made incredible progress.
In less than about 6 months, she went from never having competed in triathlon to qualifying for our pre-elite program. Not only is she a hard-worker, but she is the sweetest kid.
It has been really cool to see her progress and I have no doubt she'll continue reaching her goals, and move into leadership roles within the team.
