The coaches have voted and recognized Emily and Nikki. I notice that Shoji's favorite setter, was not on the team. Objectivity is sometimes lost due to proximity, but the other coaches echo my sentiments in regard to UH's uneven record.

Emily, thank you for the memories. If I was to have a daughter, I would love to call her Emily in honor of you, not the great player but the outstanding young woman.
