Tucker Robinson remembered that she had a bit of a heated streak to her, at first.
“She kind of bucked a little bit,” he said with a laugh.
“I kind of figured she had a shot,” he said. “She’s really talented and she’s pretty steady eddy all through all the events. Then I needed a little bit of luck to go my way, then we had a shot.”
