“I chose Concordia because I know I will have an amazing opportunity to get better athletically and to be a member of a successful team as well as go to a great school,” she said. “I know when I am at Concordia I will not only grow athletically and academically but also as a person. I am looking forward to being a part of the Stinger family.”
