Teammates on Katrina

An extremely exciting player, both to watch and to play with…draws attention with and without the ball…great finisher…defending her is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do…so quick and skilled…I feel like her stick is a third arm…always comes to practice with a new stick trick.
