Coach Gallimore on Swanson
"Morgan spent the latter part of her junior year and beginning of her senior year rehabbing a knee injury. Like Molly Boyd, Morgan should be back to full form by the time preseason begins in August. She is a speedy, crafty two-footed forward who can really give opposing defenders fits. We really think she has the confidence and ability to be a consistent goal scorer for us."
