My senior year in High School taught me patience. After having two knee surgeries to completely repair my left knee, I spent three days a week in physical therapy for most of the year to be able to finally compete just prior to district and qualify for state. A great big thanks to the Franzke and Gasser families for their support during that challenging time in my life.
