“Lisa, Amanda, and Alyssa have been great leaders for this program and I’m excited for them to be in this role for their senior year. Lauren was a great leader as a freshmen and this will be a tremendous experience for her this season,” remarked American Head Coach Katie Woods. “All of them are extremely hard workers and want to take this program to a new level. They’ve been great this fall and I’m looking forward to seeing how they do during the 2010 season.”
