COLELLA ON WUESTE

"I am proud of Elizabeth's continued dedication and eagerness to improve. Thus far this season it has probably been her best season of training and if she continues at this pace I expect that this will be far and away her best season and that is something to be proud of as a senior. I feel that Elizabeth is going to finish up her career with some really exciting swims at the end of the season."
