Coach Joanne Bowers on Lauren
"She is also a senior captain who is majoring in business. She had ankle surgery over the summer and has stayed in great shape. She has slowly been getting back into everything as she is able. She is working on all four events and should be ready for the season. She is a solid all-arounder and could anchor us maybe three events for us."
