COACH'S COMMENTS: "We are hopeful that Errin will have her best season to date for her final season. She has size and speed and has one of the hardest shots on the team. She is also pretty good in the air. Prior to her injury last season, she was the team's most dangerous attacking player. We are focused on keeping her healthy so that she can have a great year."
