Coach Falor's Comments

"Shayna has been a fierce competitor over the course of her career and is a player we must have on the field in order to be successful. A great indication of her importance is that she led the team in scoring after moving to forward last year. She has improved her ability to penetrate and is now quite dangerous in transition and going to goal. She is the very essence of competitive spirit."
