From the Sideline

“After two games, Lucy is averaging 13.5 points a game. Lucy has dedicated herself this past off-season to improve her shooting ability. She has continued that hard work early in the season by staying after practice to continue to work on her craft. Lucy is very coachable and always willing to “run for her teammates.”

— Coach Smith
