Absolutely! One of the all-time great UVa athletes.

We need more like her.

I've had so many favorite Hoo athletes, but for me, the two that are the most memorable are Leah and Somdev Devvarman.

Both were gifted athletes with incredible work ethics. Both nearly ALWAYS had a smile on their face, and were gracious to their teammates, their coaches, and their opponents, and of course, their fans. Both gave it everything they had, whether it was a minor match or meet, or the NCAA Finals.

Special, special the pool and on the court, but OFF them as well.
