"I remember lining up afterwards to get autographs [at the Final Four in Kansas City]. It was an incredible experience. It was a motivator, for sure. I'd already started to fall in love with the sport, and being in that environment [at home] really pushed me toward the path of playing collegiate volleyball." -Audriana Fitzmorris
"There's no practices I've ever enjoyed more than going to football practice every day; I don't know what it was. We still had the bad conditioning days and all that, but something about putting the pads on, I just loved it." -Jen Wellnitz
"It didn't really dawn on me [that i broke the NCAA 3-point record] until Coach [Kevin] McGuff gave me the ball after the game. It wasn't really a goal or anything I set out to do, but now that I did I'm proud to be part of that list with other great players." -Kelsey Mitchell
"I've got this new fire [after receiving a bronze through the previous winner's disqualification]; Now I know I can do it. I'm healthy. There's this huge weight lifted off my shoulder. Now I want to get on that podium and have my moment that I missed." -Katie Uhlaender
"My general life philosophy is that you can do three things really well in life, and it's up to you to choose those three things and find joy in them...

"[My mentor] Nancy showed me a path and possibility toward something that I didn't know I wanted until I saw it. That's why it's important for young girls and women to have mentors. If you can see it, then you can see the path to it. It's that simple." -Matina Kolokotronis
Happy Thanksgiving! Today I am thankful for all of the people who have helped me in some way along the path of life! I am also thankful for all of you, and I wish the best day to you all!
"When you're in times of stress or pressure, or you feel overwhelmed, that's a good thing to think about, like, 'I've got this,' Take a breath, believe in yourself, and then go out and kick some butt and battle it out to the end." -Kathryn Plummer
“I love tennis. It’s a very unique sport and the tennis players are all crazy which makes it interesting... It’s so individual and you have to be in your own world to be able to do all of that.” -Jana Novotna
"Sometimes the message is you're not enough. We're always pushing them to be better, but I think it's important as a leader of women to help them understand that they are enough. So we ended our season with that message on the board today." -Nancy Stevens
Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm a sports fan! I've been avidly watching sports since 2011 because I found that by watching sports, I would be able to communicate with my dad and brother better. Ever since I got into sports, I've been able to enjoy myself more when I go to sporting events with my family.
