COACH ROFF SAYS
"Katie combines the physical tools with all of the intangibles of an elite goalkeeper. She is an excellent shot stopper, is very good distributing with her feet, and has shown the willingness to step up and be a vocal leader on the field. She is also a great competitor that embraces the pressure that comes with the position. Katie has all the qualities necessary to develop into a standout goalkeeper in the Big Ten Conference."
