QUOTING LAMB "Krissy is a 'difference maker.' Her presence in the goal is fantastic and her control of the defensive unit is extraordinary. She has so much desire to be successful and it transcends to the entire team and program. As a member of the u-23 National team, she continues to bring excellent international exposure to the team."
