Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Our freshman this year exceeded our expectations as a player. Her willingness to work hard every day and be consistent out on the court led her to be Freshmen of the Year in our Conference. Her competitiveness and determination made even seniors better around her. Today athletes don’t realize just how important work ethic and consistency are to becoming a good player. Being able to give that kind of effort day in and day out are what separates the great players from mediocre.
