What they’re saying: “She’s a game-changer. She’s the best middle I’ve ever coached, and I’ve been doing it 24 years. She’s such a good-hearted girl, and she never gets down. She’s going to be a big-time player.” – Coach Debbie Born

What she said: “Coming out of a season where you only lose two games the whole year and you lose five seniors, people expect you to be the worst team. We overcame that and proved that just because we are young doesn’t mean we aren’t good. Every single girl on my team is amazing.”
