"Heather is perhaps the greatest competitor I've ever coached. She works hard and competes every day in practice and consistently performs in games - she never seems to have an off day or game. Despite all of her accolades she remains humble and is always willing to give credit to her teammates. She will have a long legacy here at Gonzaga as one of the all-time greatest players and the standard by which others will forever be judged."
