XC Coach Wackett, XC Coach Mertens, and swim coach Calliari have all shown they value not only my own growth as a student-athlete, but the growth of their teams as a whole. When I moved to Watertown, they all coached me as if I had been in Watertown my whole life, which I am immensely thankful for!
