What her coaches saw about her: “Dorie is a great athlete to coach and a wonderful teammate to have. She works extremely hard in games and during practice. This fall she was named captain for Visitation Academy. She showed great leadership on and off the field which was a huge reason for the success her high school team saw this season. Her goal hungry mentality has earned her many goals over the years and makes her a very valuable player!  It has been a pleasure to work with Dorie both at club and high school. I wish her all the very best in the future and this Athlete of the Week is well deserved!” -Lynsey Porter, Coach
