COACH GLENN ON SAMU
"Diane brings solid work ethic every day. Because of this, she has made the transition from novice to varsity quite well. This winter, I anticipate significant improvement from Diane. As she trains and accumulates experience, she will trust herself more. This winter will allow Diane to be not only a hard worker but a smoother contributor as well. I think this will be a rewarding transition for her."
