PATRICK ON MILTNER:

"Morgan came in as a freshman and really solidified our libero position. After postseason surgery, she committed to working hard and staying in shape. She possesses good technique and great lower body strength, which allows her to stay low and be a very consistent passer and defensive player. She played through a lot of pain last year, and with the surgery to alleviate those problems, we're hoping she can be more effective at full strength for us."
