LC Senior Dani Crum
“… UPike is close to home, they have an amazing on campus community. They have a beautiful campus along with amazing academic opportunities. Coach Staggs runs a great program of great girls, I love the morals of the team there.”
“… I think UPike is a really good opportunity for me to get my education while still getting to compete in the sport I love. But in the end all of the glory goes to God .”
“… I’m ecstatic for my senior season!! Coach Adkins is a great coach, I think he’ll be great for the team. He’s already shown us that he expects us to work hard. I plan to lead by example but working hard, I want the upcoming girls to understand you have to give 110% at practice. That you have to be willing to put the team over yourself. It’s the name on the front not the number on the back.”
“… I was crushed last year to take the loss to JC in the ship. I’m very excited to get another shot this year especially as a senior. I truly believe we have a chance of playing in state.”
