High School Coach Jason Waldvogel
"Tanner is one of the most caring, thoughtful and highly motivated individuals I have ever coached. She is an individual that doesn't need to be front to lead. She leads from within a group by her actions, rather than words. She is a tenacious competitor in everything she participates in while making others around her better. She is extremely gifted in many areas from academics to athletics, but carries herself in a very gracious and humble manner."
"We are excited to have Tanner join our team next season. When she made a campus visit and played with our team her defensive quickness and ability to push the ball up the floor stood out to me. She carries herself with confidence and I know she will have a positive impact on this team."
