In our initial games of the season she has been consistently making good stops, great runs, smart contact and ball pressure, showing excellent field vision, contributing on offense from her defensive role (recently awarded an assist on a goal) and competing the whole game.

Fallon last season really started to gain confidence in her races and in herself, and knows that she has the talent and the drive to be a fantastic distance swimming.

At the DL Pentathlon she averaged around a 5 second drop in all of her races, showing her growth as a well-rounded swimmer.

She is a reliable player that is tough at the net and understands where the smart shots are in doubles.
Emma Osborn (above right) is a Sophomore this year and has shown good growth over the summer in her consistency and her shot power. Eden and Emma have played together a few times and have shown to be a successful pair. They played together at the Park Rapids quadragular for 2 of the matches and beat a pair from Park Rapids at #1 doubles in a 3rd set tiebreaker as well as beating a pair from Long Prairie-Grey Eagle at #2 Doubles. I look forward to seeing this pair improve.
