Why We Love Annabella:  

Bella began playing rugby at age 10 and quickly set her sights on elite-level play. Her family operates a market outside of their home in Washington Boro called The Petal on Penn. The market sells produce grown by the family. "We do a lot of things to fundraise and keep up with her training. Bella grows and sells the produce; every penny goes straight to her and supports her training.”
