Head Basketball Coach, Kyle Herring had this to say about the accomplishment,
"I think it fantastic that Paloma was able to win this award. She was a player that didnt start playing basketball until this year, but she improved so much throughout the season. She always came with a smile and played as hard as she could. Not one time did she allow our situation to get the better of her. She showed great character the entire season, and I couldn't be more proud of someone than I am of Paloma."
