Coach Hermanek's Take: "Amanda Dalton possesses a ton of speed and athleticism. Defensively she can contribute in all fields, but the Bobcats will look for her to take the reign in the middle of the infield. Offensively, she will complement our lineup with her speed and put pressure on the opponent's defense."
