    As a teammate of Bridget’s on both her high school team and her JUEL team, I know the kind of impact she has on the court. She is not only a gifted player but also a great leader and incredible teammate. Her hard work has paid off through all of her accomplishments. My vote goes to a very deserving Bridget Carleton.
