Why Arizona: I think the best thing about Arizona is our team atmosphere. I love coming to practice and seeing everyone knowing that they are all there for me and we are all working toward the same goal. One of the strengths I will be able to provide to the team is my competitive nature. I love to race and will try to push everyone to do the same in practice. What stood out to me was the fact that not only do we have the most incredible coaching staff but our team as a whole is amazing and has so much potential! And I'm looking to win a national championship and this is the place to be.
