As a three year varsity athlete she has stepped into the leadership role this year and has kept the team focused and positive. Her effort in practice is a constant example of what a coach wants from every athlete. While having high expectations of herself and teammates she never forgets to take the time to express her appreciation of their efforts and contributions. A consummate teammate.”
