COLELLA ON RIDGWAY

"Coming off some setbacks last year Sarah is determined to pick up where she left off at the end of the spring training where we saw much more consistency in her training. She has thus far lived up to her commitment and has been showing a lot of promise this fall and I believe we are in for some fast swimming from Sarah this year."
