photo Cagle on Trout: "KJ was without a doubt an ACC-caliber defender for us last year. Physically, she is probably our strongest player and without a doubt our biggest 'gamer'. When things were on the line for us last year, KJ came through. We will look for her competitive spirit to be present again this fall, and we look forward to having her anchor our defense again this season."
