Comment from high school coach:

“Lauren was a four-year starter, very coachable, and always a leader on the team.  I have coached many girls in my 15 years of high school coaching, and I can honestly say Lauren is the best player I have ever coached. She would be an outstanding player for any collegiate program in the country.”

-Steve Ludwig Salem Community High School Bowling Coach
