Pensky's Take
"Simone is blessed by her ability to run all day, and that is what I like about her as a player. She will continue to be a staple in this program as either a forward or wide midfielder."

On Dekker: Solid player who has outstanding quickness ... has been a force for the Terps in each of her three college seasons, coming off the bench to spark the lineup as a freshman and as a starter last season ... has demonstrated versatility playing wide midfield and up top ... can take defenders one-on-one ... a good crosser ... changed from uniform No. 7 to No. 11 prior to sophomore season.
