COACH GALLIMORE ON CARSTENSEN
"Jaime had a great spring for us and that is going to translate into a great fall. She has to put up numbers in terms of goals and assists and clearly on set pieces she is a threat. I think she clearly is a veteran on our team, that needs to put up big numbers this year and she is clearly capable. She's got a wicked shot with both feet, she's talented in the air and she's good on the dribble."
