From the Sideline

“While Brooke Pedersen is just a sophomore, she is beginning to learn what it means to be a leader on the court and how she will need to translate that to off the court leadership and higher standards of conduct. As you grow into a leadership position, more responsibility falls on your shoulders. Young girls in the Liberty Select Program (third through eighth grade) know who she is and they are watching her. I am excited to see her continued growth both on and off the court. Brooke has had a great three game stretch scoring 20 points, 19 points and 17 points respectively, helping to energize her teams performance.

— Coach Nathan Winegar
