Quote from coach: Gina had a very good first year. She has some really good skills and learned a lot about the game this year. She is a quick learning and picked-up on some of the nuances of the game. Gina has a tremendous ceiling. As she matures with the mental part of the game, she has the potential to be one of the best that we have had in our program. - Minooka coach Frank Yudzentis
