  • Hardworking
  • Skilled
  • Toughness
  • Team First

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

Amy Campbell – Great Athlete, Hardworking, Skilled but was thought of by many as selfish in terms of statistics – Well she was far from it and that is why we went further then we ever went in the programs history her senior year. She did whatever the team needed her to do. If we needed goals, she could score them but more importantly she would get the ball back over and over again if there was a turnover. She hustled on groundballs and draw controls and passed the ball giving us the best chance to win every single day. She became the ultimate team player.
