What They're Saying: Jill Ellis

“That’s a gentleman that built and paved the way, obviously with Anson [Dorrance] and all the previous coaches. Massive credit to them in terms of building the expectation and building the excellence that’s served this program so well. And for anyone who steps into this role, that really is - that’s the charge — to continue to win championships and to continue to push this team. It’s a big mantle to wear in terms of just honoring what’s come before you.”
