QUOTING WONG ON PENN STATE
"Penn State has a great tradition and alumni following all over the country along with a beautiful campus and top notch education opportunities."
QUOTING COACH PETRINI ON WONG
"Kimi has battled a lot of adversity throughout her career. One thing that has never waivered is her work ethic and desire to be the best she can. She is definitely ready to put all of the pieces together in her senior campaign. She was a big offensive force for us this past fall and I will look to her to continue that this spring. I am ready to see her make a statement this season."
