“Our team is full of leaders, but for the second  year in a row Ari, Danika, and Emily were voted captains,” head coach Jane Albright said. “All three of them were fantastic leaders at their respective high schools. They have prepared well and made their teammates better in the off-season. We are all excited about what each of them brings to the team, both on and off the court. Our team will be in good hands with them as our respective captains this season.”
