Quotable: “It is rewarding as a coach to see good things happen to good kids. Camryn has had to overcome a couple injuries to get where she is. Most just get to see the skill on the court but I get to see the kid that puts in the extra training reps, conditioning. She is respected by her teammates and leads by a positive example.” — Reagan coach Mike Carter
