Coach Fles Comments:
"Melissa is one of the best players I have ever had the privilege to coach. She is a competitor through and through. She never backs down from a challenge and she is calm and cool under pressure. She has hit game winning shots and half court shots. Her sheer determiniation is evident every time she gets a rebound. She leads by example and is an inspiration to many."
