"I found a lot of positives out of the injury. But it wasn't the prime motivating factor this season. I just wanted to play again. I had high expectations but not nearly as high as last year. I wasn't expecting to play as well as last year. I just wanted to make it through the games and not have an awful time on the field. I was really worried about coming back. It was a rough start. The first five games I could barely make it through because I was in so much pain. As the games went on, I just think it was all about getting back into game play. I was scared in the beginning and I really don't think I had a breakthrough moment until game 6, when I got my confidence back. … I think it's cool that I came back and was able to do well because I had no expectations of doing nearly as well as last year. So I was proud of myself, I guess. I like to contribute all around the field, not just with goals. But I'm sure [the record] will be broken soon enough."

"One of the great things about Katharine is that number-wise she was one of the top players, but she was also one of the hardest workers we ever had. She was just one of the most coachable kids you could ask for. She is one of those players you're glad you got a chance to coach. … I think she has done things whether it is our school or any school that other players haven't done. She just has a real passion to do well. The thing about Katharine is that anything she tries, she does well with."

Up next:

Will attend Colby College and play field hockey and lacrosse. "I'm a little worried about playing field hockey because I haven't played [in more than year]. I'm going to be playing a lot this summer to get ready."
