Coach Mike Sparacino’s Quote:

“Kendall has taken her game to another level these past few weeks.  Her hard work, combined with the willingness to do the little things that don’t show up on the score sheet, has helped propel our team.  The soccer this team has played lately is the best I’ve seen since taking over last season.  Kendall is a big part of that.”
