COACH COLE ON MARIA: "Maria just loves to run and that energy can be contagious at practice. Even in the short time she’s been on the team, you can see how happy running makes her. Plus she runs really fast, which is also something she seems to really enjoy. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Maria running really fast and having a lot of fun over the course of this fall and for years to come."
