"Casey was voted most improved player in our program and deservedly so," Coach Williams said. "I pushed her from day one and she worked her tail off from day one. She was an impactful player at times this year and we would not have had the success we did this year without her."

"She was a great team player," he said. "With dedicated work in the off-season, we hope her role can expand in her senior year."
