“Wow Spartans! What an amazing weekend!
I’m not generally one for extended speeches, either in person or on Facebook. So yesterday, when Hazel Alison Ross was insistent that I needed to prepare a speech in case I won an award, I was just as insistent that I was not going to win so that it was not necessary. In the end we were both right since I did win the Outstanding Female Field Athlete Award but was not required to speak. However, she did get in my head so I would like to say this:
I want to thank God for the amazing blessing I’ve been given in being able to attend Trinity Western, and be a part of the Spartan community. I’m truly grateful for the amazing opportunity of not only being able to train with such a great coach as Laurier Prime but for constantly being surrounded by such amazing coaches, teammates, and friends.
Additionally, aside from my incredible family who are my biggest supporters and cheerleaders, I want to say thank you to Byron Jacks, and Cody Low, Jessie Dosanjh and the entire Universal Athletics Track Club who have all played a part in coaching and encouraging me the past few years and without whom I would likely no longer ben involved with track and field.
Thank you everyone and Amen.”
