I might be short on offense and defense in a game, but I can still do the little things to be consistent through four quarters.

It really showed in his pull-up sweaters. … Over the past year, what she has improved on is her leadership. She’s very respectful and very humble, and now she’s a vocal leader,” – Lake Ridge coach Stephani Gray.
