“Although the year didn’t end the way we had hoped it would, she should be proud of her year,” Seal continued. “As soon as her race was over Monday, the first thing she said to me was, ‘Coach, we've got to work harder next year.' She is only going to get better in the future because of her work ethic and dedication.”
