And I talked to her just moments ago. First off, congratulations. How does it feel to make history tonight? I got to tell you, it's a little bit overwhelming. Extremely humbling. It's just kind of one of those surreal moments that's just like, okay, pinch me because is this really happening. I love what your colleagues and coaches are saying.
