same interests and to learn time management and build confidence,” Colangelo said.
Colangelo’s dedication and hard work have paid off. “She recently qualified for States in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:05.06”, Mary Green, head coach for indoor track, said. “Not only is Morgan doing well as an individual, she is a strong member of our relay team and she is always willing to help her team in any way.”
