Excerpt from original AVSR report:"Swift, springy athlete and a rangy, experienced middle with much talent for continued development. .... Approach footwork is backwards, although she jumps from evenly-planted feet after a final half-step with her right foot. .... Superior blocking range due to a quick first step, outstanding foot speed, and an easy, sudden jump. .... Poised, even-keel competitor. Conscientious and reliable off the court." [April 2007]
