She is a powerful skater with quick feet and hands.

19U Coach Chris Baer said, “Leah has a D-I work ethic and skill set… we are excited to see how much she will continue to improve over this next year and a half.  She earns everything she gets, and we know she is very deserving of this opportunity and will make an immediate impact for the Big Green”.
