What Her Coach Says:
Abbey has been a joy to watch develop over the past four years. She came into college as an unheralded recruit and then she started to work extremely hard making herself into one of the greatest NCAA athletes of all time. Abbey is a wonderful person, very caring and humble, but when she gets on the track to race she is a fierce competitor.” – Mark Coogan, Assistant Women’s Track & Field Coach / Women’s Cross Country Head Coach

“The team was in a tough spot in the time period before Abbey got here. They were improving steadily, but Abbey has certainly been a catalyst to get the group to where we are today. Her presence and leadership has helped the team learn to believe in themselves and that they can be successful not only in the Ivy League, but also on a national level.”Mark Coogan, Assistant Women’s Track & Field Coach / Women’s Cross Country Head Coach
