1. I am not usually one to talk about individual accomplishments. I will however take a mn to thank all of my teammates and coaches

2. In reaching this milestone. Without great people non of this wokld be possible. I truly thank them for everything they have done for me

3. One day you're a 9th grade kid biking to open gym at your high school and the next your a professional athlete going to a game in D.C.

4. My advice, go to Open gym! Play, win, lose, compete, put yourself out there, get out of your comfort zone, have fun!

5. You never know where this sport might take you. I am living proof of that!

6. I look forward to the day when this record is broken by some little girl who puts even more heart and soul into the game than me.

7. If she is lucky she will have the same support I have had from my family. Thank u to my husband ben, my mom, dad, brothers and sisters

8. On to the next!
