What are your athletic/international goals?

My goals are to make Olympic/world teams and accumulate medals at all tournaments. 

What does it mean to represent the Gopher WC?

It means a lot to be a part of the Gopher WC family. It’s such a family oriented environment and it’s an honor to have a club that provides us the ability to continue training post college to chase our athletic dreams.
