"The biggest focus for Jade is to continue to utilize patience. She comes from the very competitive Sandra Day O'Connor High School team where she was a scoring member of their Nike Team National high school team. She has had a few setbacks in her running and my goal is to establish some consistency in her training. Once we get that, she will see some positive race results."
