Char Morett on Allison Scola
"Allie continues to light up the field with her speed on the ball. She has keen passing skills but can also take the ball aggressively into the circle when needed. Allie will be able to interchange positions throughout the game. That is what will make her so dangerous and will cause problems for our opponents. As an elected captain, her competitive spirit will surely be something you notice on the field."
