COLELLA ON McGRATH

"She has been such a welcomed addition to the team. Kristin swam well last year, especially considering that she does not join us until the end of November after the soccer season. I would suspect to see a continuation of last year's results in response to what she has learned in a short period of time. She brings to the team a real sense of what it takes to achieve personal goals and I appreciate that about her."
