Coach Montoro on Nash
"Amia has great natural speed, and the desire to move up in distance to the 800m/1500m here at Santa Clara. If we can bring her along carefully, she has the potential to be very good down the line. It will be exciting to follow her progress over the years as she moves up in distance."
