“Izzy may be quiet, but what she brings to the field is often unmatched. I’ve never seen her give up on a play, give up at practice or ever slack at anything," said Coach Kendyl Baird. "She brings such a tenacity to be the best and to give it her all every second of every day. I’m so glad to have her in the midfield to help keep us solid centrally and I think she will do really well this summer. I’m very excited to have her on the team as well.“
