"I have the utmost respect for Indiana University and pride for the time that I was a student-athlete. Coach (Lin) Loring gave me not only an opportunity to earn an exceptional education but also an opportunity to compete at the highest level of collegiate tennis. For these opportunities, I am eternally grateful to Coach and the entire staff. Indiana University's exceptional record of excellence in academics and athletics inspired me to set high goals for myself both in the classroom and on the tennis court. Since IU gave so much to me as an individual, I sought to represent Indiana University and my team with dignity and sportsmanship. I am truly honored to have been a student-athlete at Indiana University."
