Kate Grace.

Excellence creates opportunity. And brilliance creates more opportunity. It is with bittersweet pride that we cheer on Kate Grace as she flies off with new wings.

Kate, our original bird, you brought us with you on your journey: the excitement of first success, the depression and frustration of injury, the silly dances, the starting line facial grimaces, and the most triumphant victories. From goofy to majestically elegant, uncertain to dominant, awkward to powerful, you shared with us the fullest possible range of the human experience. We will never forget.

Fast K8, you will always be part of Oiselle's DNA and family. Thank you, and bon chance. Fly, Kate full of Grace.
