SLOANE ON PENN STATE
“I chose Penn State because it had the perfect balance of academic and athletic competition I was looking for. I wanted a big school with a family atmosphere and I feel at home when I’m at Penn State.”
DOHERTY ON SLOANE
“Alyssa is a quick, fast and versatile defender. She has really great presence defensively when pressuring out: causing huge turnovers and making a difference at the defensive end.”
