Player Profile: Senior Basketball player Katie Williams

The ReSporter: What position will you be playing for Canyon Lake this year?
Katie Williams: “I will usually play low post. I have learned some different moves and I am posting up a little more than I would of in year’s past.”
The ReSporter: The Hawks seem to be at a different level so far this season.

Katie Williams: “Depth!! That is one major reason. I think we also have more speed than we have had in years past.”
The ReSporter: What has Coach Gallagher instilled in you and what are you hoping for this season?
Katie Williams: “She (Coach Gallagher) has always had her teams hustling and I think that is one major tendency. I’m really excited for this team, we will be good and we will always work hard.
This group of girls are a Big Family.”
The ReSporter: Thanks Katie, after this interview, she had one of their biggest blowouts in CL’s history against Comfort (62-24).
