Once again Trish Mowatt raised her level in big games. With first place on the line and undefeated Pierce in the gym, Trish was phenomenal. Time after time she comes up with the big point. I consider her a strong candidate for a JC All-American. She is a great defender, passer, incredible jump server, unstoppable on offense. She is averaging less than two hitting errors a game for the season. She is a great leader who the girls trust will come through in the clutch.
