Character

“Some people talk about being a great human being, but Audriana actually works to be one. She’s a great listener who thinks very deeply about what you’re saying. She’s thoughtful, conscientious and very aware of what’s going on. She’s the person that people go to.” - Head Coach Kevin Hambly
