"She works at her game very hard, and that’s why her scores are coming down," John Marshall coach Andy Ollenburg said. "You know you have a kid who likes the game when you call her house at 7:30 on a Sunday night and she’s out chipping and putting. And she’s an excellent teammate. She talks to the team about rules and etiquette. When I ask for feedback, I get honest, straight-forward feedback. That’s what you want from anybody in that position. She’s just a great leader, and her teammates really look up to her."
