action and her defending skills … defensive digging, and what not.
Both of these elements will make us better and certainly more
accountable defensively almost immediately. As she gets physically
stronger, her attacking pieces are going to get really good.
She has a tremendous excitement for the game right now because she
isn’t really a lifelong volleyball player. She’s been involved in
other things.  I have had a chance to evaluate and determine
Lauren’s fit into our program over the last three years. I think she
makes situations and teams that she competes with better with her
support, energy and determination.  She has a very heavy armswing and can
control attacking with a variety of shots. She will be fun to watch”.
