DIXON ON PLOCH: "She probably hits the hardest ball of anyone on the team. She's a natural lefty, so she has an outstanding backhand and is very competitive. She really likes to pound the ball from the backcourt with both the forehand and backhand and she has a serve that can out and out win the point with one strike. Maggie has a lot of match experience which she will bring to the team."
