What they’re saying: “We always tell them, if you have an error, shake it off, make up for it at the plate. These two games, that’s what she did, she made up for it at the plate. She’s really put a step forward in making sure we get to a region title.” – coach Angela Lillard

What she said: “I tried to load up more to get more power toward the ball, and I think that made it go farther when I hit it. I think I’m doing exceptionally well. I do make some errors sometimes – no one is perfect – but I try to do what I can for my team.”
