Roberta's 2003 Player Diary

"A lot of the success that we have this year is going to be dependent on how Roberta does. She has been playing at the bottom half of the lineup the last two year, and this year's team needs her to take a role in the middle to top of the lineup — not only be there but to win. But at whatever level she plays, Roberta is not afraid to dig deep and compete with the best of them." --Coach Bobby Kleinecke
