Quotable: “I got on the campus and I clicked with the girls automatically. The coach has always been nice and has emailed me. It felt like family up there. If I am going to move so far away, way not make it feel like family. What I will remember from Eastside is playing with Em (Emma Lannon) for four years, we were district champs this year and last year, which was huge for us. I have literally had a different coach every year.”— Alex Mueller

Quotable: “I liked the environment at Webber, everything was good there. The players and coaches I met were nice. And they offered sports management, which is what I plan to major in.
