DAGGETT ON PENN STATE
"Penn State athletics has always been a huge part of my life: from football games to taking trips to watch women's athletics in action, being a part of the Penn State family has always been a dream. As I grew to know more about the incredible balance of excellent athletics and academics that PSU offers, I realized there was no place I wanted to spend my college years at more than in Happy Valley."
DOHERTY ON DAGGETT
"Kelly is a crafty, smart attacker who has a great attacking IQ. She is not only a great shooter, but a great assister as well. She will fit right in with our eclectic attack."
