Coach’s Comment: “MG” is perfectly represents what people mean when they talk about a ‘fully rounded student athlete’. Not only is she incredibly hard working in the show pen, but she is supportive of her fellow teammates and works to provide to her community. She works with TCU Equestrian to provide service to Fort Worth and she traveled globally this past summer to lend a hand.
MG is constantly working to do her part wherever she is, and she gets it all done with a smile! TCU is proud to have her as an athlete and teammate.
