Coach Joanne Bowers on Sheridan:
"She came in as probably our strongest recruit of our freshmen. She sprained her ankle pretty bad when she got here and has been out a lot of the fall but staying in shape and doing what she can. She has slowly but surely gotten back on every event and I can see her making our lineup in everything. She is from the same gym as Aliza and Meg and has the same work ethic."
