Why WT: "I feel like this is a really big accomplishment. I've been working at this for three years now and I never thought it would be possible. This is truly a dream come true. WT was my first choice. It's close to home, and my grandma played a big role at WT. I think I'll fit in great there. With my times compared to the teams times, I felt like it was the best option."
