Coach Stan Carpenter's take: "Kayla is a great kid. She always has a smile on her face and she enjoys laughing with the team. As a player, Kayla is one of our best all-around players. She can play any position well whether it is back row or front row. She is powerful from the front row as an outside hitter and she reads the ball well when she is on the back row. She has come a long way this season and has been a joy to coach and a pleasure to watch."
