• He said it: "When I think of Jazmen Bunch, the first words that come to mind are hard work. In 30 years of coaching, I've never had a young lady to wanted to get better; she was never satisfied, regardless of her times. Her work ethic is incredible. If I said, 'No practice today,' she'd say, 'Why?' She's also very respectable and a 4.0 (GPA) student." -- Tigers coach Danny Alberty
