When George Fox’s lone senior Kristen Shielee is asked what she thought upon first meeting her team’s 10 first year players, she doesn’t hesitate: “They’re loud,” she says with a smile. By contrast Shielee seems quiet, though her play speaks volume.

And, along with youthful exuberance, the freshmen bring a ton of talent that has fueled this unexpected, undefeated run to the national semifinals. We caught up Shielee, Coach Scott Rueck and first year guard Keisha Gordon after the Bruins’ sectional final victory.
