Head Coach Erica Jasper on Rachana Bhat:

“Rachana is what coaches call a “tough out” as her steadiness, smarts, and calm demeanor make her difficult for opponents to rattle.  It’s been fun to see her take this to a new level this fall and really begin to own her game style.  We expect to see an ever better Rachana this spring!”
