Thank You: “I would like to thank Tri-State Director Sue Montegari, who has been an amazing coach. She always had the answer. She has always been there for help and support. Sue would weigh options with me in a supportive way. She could always be trusted to give an honest answer. I would also like to thank my high school coach, Taryn Tabano. Every single time we called her for advice, to complain, to question, she answered the phone. Taryn has been there every step of the way for years. I would also like to thank Tri-State Goalie Coach Ginny Capicchioni, who is a great motivator and role model. Ginny has given me opportunities to hone my skills, and has always been there for me when I needed her.”
