Coach Gallimore on Stirn
"I'm just happy for Dana that she's made as much of a comeback as she has after all she's been through physically. I hope nothing more for her than health and many, many minutes. She has great speed and great tenacity for a player her size. I think now that she has her confidence back she'll be ready for a great season."
