Coach Criste ON Choi:
"Debbi is a natural leader. She has completely maximized her potential in the weight room and on the practice field. She gives 100 percent and that has really set a really strong tone for the team this year. With continued hard work, she definitely has the potential to be an all-league caliber sprinter."
