Coach Jeff Thomas’ quote: “From the start of the season until right now she keeps improving. We told her she has the right build for a goalkeeper, good height, good hands and it’s showing now. She’s made saves with her feet and hands, and is getting better all season. She is becoming more of a vocal leader back there, and she’s just getting comfortable and building confidence.”
