"I'm very humbled to join USABS as the Board of Directors chairman," Piechoski said. "As an organization, we need to be completely focused on the product, which is our group of athletes. We will continue to raise the expectations and build an even greater program for our great athletes. Whatever we can do to make that happen, we are going to do it."
