“I am genuinely thrilled to have Amanda join our program. In high school, club and then the college level, she has proven her ability to score goals. She is a technical player with the ability to both create chances and also score them; add to that her winning mentality and I believe these are great attributes to bring to the team. In getting to know her, it was clear to me that her commitment to her education, teamed with her desire to play a big part of a winning program align very well with our culture and expectations. I believe she will be a great boost to our attack and team as a whole and I am very genuinely looking forward to working with her.
