She earned cross country and track MVP honors five times and received the Coach's Award four times. Laura was named West Potomac Female Athlete of the Year as a sophomore and junior. She was also nominated for the national Woman Athlete of the Year Award. She was a member of the National Honor Society and the Key Club.
