Markakis said he studied the roster and said he has faith in a roster that includes starting pitchers Miller, Julio Teheran, Mike Minor and Alex Wood.I saw what they had on paper and I know what guys they have over here and the coaching staff and front office and their fan base, he said.

This past year, with changing my training base, helped renew my passion and love for training and competing," said Lacoste. "Im very happy with all that I have accomplished and I would like to thank everyone who made my journey and my career a success. Even though I had ups and downs during the years, you were always there to help and give me advice to be a better skater and a better person. And I would like to thank my family, especially my parents and my sister. They supported me through 20 years of my skating career, and I truly cherish the commitment and sacrifices they made to allow me to pursue my dreams."

I also appreciate all the choreographers who helped me develop that very important aspect of my figure skating. My home club, CPA Du Roussillon, ARPAS (Patinage Rive-Sud), Patinage Quéebec and Skate Canada were with me every step of the way, and your support is so appreciated. And lastly I would like to thank all the officials, volunteers, supporters and fans, who always had a word of encouragement or cheered me on. Without all of these people in my life, I would never have achieved my goals, or become the person that I am now." "Amelie represented Skate Canada proudly as a member of our national team for many years and as our Canadian champion in 2012," said Mike Slipchuk, High Performance Director, Skate Canada. "She worked with great desire and determination to achieve her goals, and pursue her dreams. We are pleased she plans to stay involved in skating, and look forward to keeping her engaged now as a member of our national team alumni." Although not completely sure of her future plans, Lacoste plans to stay connected to skating and to give back to the sport that has been so much a part of her life. She has a final word for anyone who wants to pursue and achieve a goal. "Believe in your dreams. Dreams do come true if you are willing do anything in your willpower to achieve it. Go after it. The most important thing, listen to your heart and follow your intuition." ' ' '
